I’d like to wish you all a very happy 2011 and hope that you will make it over to wonderful, wild Mayo this year.
Apart from my own guided walking holidays and one-day hiking event options, I would encourage you to come visit Mayo for the great outdoors, whatever your taste may be. Having slumbered for years as a tourist destination, this county has really woken up over the last while.
Mayo is home to the huge annual event that is GaelForce West – http://www.gaelforceevents.com/west/
Westport held its first Get Out There adventure festival in 2010 –http://westportadventurefestival.com/
But Mayo is also home to wonderful outdoors activity providers, such as these guys –
And don’t forget – 2011 will see the extension of the Cycleway / Greenway all the way up to Achill and back to Westport, giving Mayo a best-of-breed 42 km entirely off-road linear trail for cycling and walking.
So whether it’s walking / hiking, kayaking, cycling or other outdoor pursuits you are into, make Mayo your destination in 2011. You’ll be welcome.
