Along Ireland's west coast, County Mayo is characterized by small towns, dramatic seaside cliffs, and classic Irish hospitality. With no main city, the county instead offers a selection of charming towns and villages, giving visitors the chance to immerse themselves in Irish culture at a slower pace. The unspoiled nature, from rugged islands and prehistoric landscapes to jagged cliffs and blanket boglands, are a highlight here.
