While North Mayo has something amazing to offer rain or shine, there’s nothing quite like feeling the warmth of the sun on your face as you experience the very best of North Mayo’s majestic landscape. Spring in Mayo North is fast approaching, so let’s take a look at some of the amazing scenes we can expect to enjoy, as the clouds begin to part and the days become longer.
At almost 1,000 years old, Killala Round Tower, is one of the best examples of an intact round tower remaining in Ireland. On a clear sunny day, the tower silhouette looks amazing against the deep blue sky. There’s also lots more to see and do in Killala!

There’s nothing quite like a walk on the beach. Footprints at Kilcummin Strand, Co. Mayo near Lacken – one of North Mayo’s most spectacular yet undiscovered beaches, just off the Wild Atlantic Way.
As the days start getting longer, and spring in Mayo emerges, the opportunity to savour a North Mayo sunset gets greater. One of the best places from which to watch the sun dip below the horizon is from the spectacular headland of Downpatrick Head. Gaze at the Stags of Broadhaven in the distance and breathe in the clean Atlantic air.
