Mayo’s wild beauty and haunting landscapes are reminiscent of Connemara but you’ll find far fewer tourists here, which means there are plenty of untapped opportunities for exploration by car, foot, bicycle or horseback. If you long however to escape from the marauding hordes, head for Clare or Achill islands. Both are havens for walking and cycling while Achill boasts fabulous surfing, horse riding, kitesurfing, kayaking, sea angling and even an archaeology summer school.

Charming Westport boasts fantastic pubs and restaurants as well as a modern leisure park, an 18-hole championship golf course and the coastal cycling greenway. Meanwhile lively Ballina is best known for the River Moy, its salmon fishing and the annual Salmon Festival. History lovers will also be drawn to Mayo’s ancient treasures like Croagh Patrick, the pilgrimage mountain overlooking Clew Bay.
