About the location


Bangor Erris 12 miles.

Known as the capital of the Mullet Peninsula in the barony of Erris, the coastal town of Belmullet rests between Blacksod and Broadhaven Bays, inlets of the Atlantic Ocean, and represents the entry point to this mystical and unspoilt County Mayo headland. Although classed as a Gaeltacht (or Irish-speaking) area, English is universally used. Much of the native culture and heritage of Ireland can be experienced here, from traditional Irish music to the song and dance for which Ireland is renowned the world over. Many visitors to the area enjoy the fantastic fishing on offer, both salt and fresh water, while watersports are also popular with surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing available from the beaches locally. Welcoming and friendly, the town boasts a number of pubs, four hotels, shops and seafood restaurants, as well as a selection of festivals throughout the year. You can also visit the Gateway Leisure Park, ideal for a family day out on those rainy days with various leisure and sporting activities for the children. At the four corners of Erris you will find the Neolithic Cèide Fields, the unspoilt wilderness of Ballycroy National Park, the towering cliffs of Ceann Iorrais (Erris Head) and the final resting place of the fabled Children of Lir, the island of Inis Gluaire.
