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!
Day One : Collection at Castlebar train station, drive to Béal an Mhuirthead (Belmullet) where we enjoy dinner, followed by continuation to our excellent B&B at Blacksod (An Fód Dubh).
Day Two : Boat trip out to the wonderful, evocative Iniskea South Island, deserted since the 1930s and now home to seabirds and wildlife. (5km loop walk)
Day Three : Walking The Mullet peninsula, with its fabulous beaches and views to take the breath away. Visits along the way to a ruined medieval abbey in a stunning location, a holy well by the sea and more. (20km linear walk)
Day Four : Having departed our B&B, we take in the wonderful cliff-top walk at Ceann Iorrais (Erris Head) on our way back to Castlebar. (5km loop walk)
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 happens to be located right beside a great West of Ireland pub.
Price : Euro 395 per person sharing.
Included : Collection from and return to Castlebar train station, three nights B&B, three packed lunches, three dinners, along with full guiding throughout and the boat trip out to Iniskea. A magical weekend in Mayo!
Not included : Your return train trip to Castlebar, drinks and miscellaneous purchases.
Unfortunately, as there is only one B&B in Blacksod, of limited capacity, single room bookings are not available for this weekend.
