Western Ocean Walking Weekend @ Blacksod (An Fód Dubh)
Apr 2 – Apr 5 all-day

This fabulous walking weekend in northwest Mayo takes place over the Easter weekend in early April 2021, in a land dominated by the North Atlantic. The barony of Erris occupies this far corner of Mayo – a spectacular landscape of Atlantic blanket bog, high sea cliffs, low-lying peninsulas and seemingly never-ending beaches.

Day One : Arrival and dinner in Belmullet, followed by drive to our excellent B&B at Blacksod (An Fód Dubh) and orientation.

Day Two : The truly wonderful cliff-top walk at An Ceathrú Thaidhg, in the far corner of NW Mayo. We follow that with a second, shorter stroll on Erris Head’s beautiful cliff-top walk.

Day Three : Out on the wonderful, evocative Iniskea Islands, deserted since the 1930s and now home to seabirds and wildlife (subject to weather).

Day Four : Walking The Mullet peninsula, with its fabulous beaches and views to take the breath away. Visits along the way to a tiny ruined medieval church in a stunning location and a holy well by the sea.

For this walking weekend, we stay in one of the finest B&Bs on the Wild Atlantic Way, where we enjoy 3 B&B nights. It’s located right beside one of the best pubs in the West of Ireland.

JOMO Weekend on The Mullet Peninsula @ Blacksod (An Fód Dubh)
Jun 25 – Jun 28 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!
