Mayo North Tourism Celebrates a Decade of Success with Bonanza Prize Giveaway - Visit North Mayo

Promoting the Beauty and Culture of North Mayo and Beyond as a Year-Round Tourism Destination

Mayo North Tourism is proud to celebrate its 10th anniversary, marking a decade of promoting the beauty and culture of North Mayo and beyond as year-round tourism destination. Since its inception, Mayo North Tourism has evolved into a community-led destination marketing and development organisation, significantly boosting the local economy through tourism.

Over the past decade, we have seen a growth in visitor numbers, a rise in festivals and events, and increased regional spending. The team has implemented a detailed marketing plan to strategically promote activities and events, generating national and international media coverage, attracting influencers and visiting media, and engaging with an ever-increasing global audience.

Appreciation and Acknowledgements

Mairéad Melody Carr, Manager of Mayo North Tourism, expressed her heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has contributed to this success. “Our achievements over the past ten years would not have been possible without the unwavering support of our stakeholders,” she said. “A special thank you to Moy Valley Resources, Ballina Chamber of Commerce, Ballina Municipal District councils and the Mayo County Council for their continuous support.”

Mayo North Tourism also acknowledges the vital role played by its members and the local community. “Our members have been instrumental in our success, and without their dedication and hard work, our destination would not be what it is for tourists and visitors alike,” Mairéad added. These partnerships have developed a vibrant tourism sector that highlights the unique attractions and experiences North Mayo and West Sligo offer.

Celebrating 10th Anniversary with Competitions

Looking ahead, Mairéad emphasised the power of media, especially social media, in connecting with visitors. “Social media allows us to showcase the stunning landscapes and rich heritage of this area consistently. We want to thank our biggest fans—our followers. Their enthusiasm and support have been the driving force behind our efforts,” she said. To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we are hosting a series of competitions on our Instagram and Facebook pages (@MayoNorth) with fantastic prizes, including accommodation stays and a variety of indoor and outdoor activities such as shopping, yoga, Pilates, stand-up paddling, visits to local attractions, and dining experiences. This giveaway showcases the incredible places to see, things to do, and places to eat and stay in the region.

Each week a separate competition will take place on our socials. The first competition launched included a 2 night escape to Belmullet in North Mayo

Future Collaborations and Continued Commitment

Mayo North Tourism remains committed to working closely with all stakeholders to further enhance and promote this beautiful area. “We look forward to collaborating with Fáilte Ireland on the upcoming Destination Experience Development Plan and supporting future events and festivals through promotions. By continuing to work together, we can ensure this region remains a top destination for domestic and international tourists.”
