"Holy and Hilly" Top 5 Page for this destination County Mayo by sabsi

County Mayo Travel Guide: 219 reviews and 398 photos

The last stop of our two week trip along Ireland's west coast (see our Itinerary in a travelogue on my Ireland page!) brought us to County Mayo.

We stayed in a little place close to Westport and tried climbing Croagh Patrick while we were there. I loved the spectacular landscapes of Mayo, the sea never looked as blue and the mountains never looked higher anywhere else for the last two weeks!

I hope to go back there some day to see more of this great part of a great island...

Have a look around!


Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Hills, Islands, beautiful scenery!

    Hi Sabsi, Happy St. Patrick's Day and thanks for your very informative pages about County Mayo. That's the land of my ancestors, although I haven't been there yet. We hope to make the trip in a year or two. Stephen and Karen

    Sabsi, Sabsi, I know now why you didn’t reach the top, STOP smoking. –lol- There is so much history and hardship on this page, the famine and the walk up Croagh Patrick. A great page with amazing travelogues and overwhelming pictures.
