Get set for an amazing getaway in one of our Mayo rental cottages, dotted about this beautiful corner of western Ireland.
As with much of this fascinating nation, Mayo hosts historic treasures such as Ceide Fields, the world's oldest known field system dating back to 5,000BC! The sacred mountain of Croagh Patrick attracts thousands of pilgrims for mass every 'Reek Sunday' in honour of Ireland's patron saint - avoid the crowds and trek to the top another day for spellbinding views over Clew Bay and 365 sparkling islands.
