Fancy a drink to enjoy amidst the towering cliffs, majestic mountains and flowing rivers? Well, the Mayo North area has a range of locally produced beers, brewed by Reel Deel Brewery to compliment the stunning backdrop of the Nephin Mountain in Lahardane and the Deel River in Crossmolina.

While Poitín may have disappeared ‘somewhat’ into the mythical backdrop of Ireland’s majestic past,  modern trends are embracing the rise in craft beer and locally distilled spirits.

Inspired by the richness and beauty of the local area, Reel Deel Brewery, whose name incorporates the Deel River in Crossmolina is a ‘Hoppin’ Mad’ microbrewery, run by Marcus Robinson that produces authentic craft beer from its base in Crossmolina. Try a delicious Irish Blond, a Jack the Lad or a General Humbert Ale in one of the many local pubs and restaurants, or enjoy  it paired with a local dish.
