JOMO Weekend on The Mullet Peninsula @ Blacksod (An Fód Dubh)
Jun 26 – Jun 29 all-day

JOMO Weekend, three days of fabulous walking in northwest Mayo, takes place over the last weekend of June. The Mullet Peninsula occupies this far corner of Mayo – a spectacular landscape dominated by the wild North Atlantic, boasting high sea cliffs, low-lying field systems, seemingly never-ending beaches and stunning offshore islands.

For this JOMO Weekend – Joy of Missing Out – we get back to loving the landscape around us, enjoying our walks and chats and not feeling the need to Google everything … Your phone is your camera, but no longer your endless web browsing master!
