I am really looking forward to this coming bank holiday weekend’s walking in Mayo. While hill walking it is not, Western Ocean Walking Weekend offers fantastic off-road walking in the wonderful north-west corner of Mayo.

Two spectacular cliff-top walks take place on Saturday, offering great views out over the North Atlantic. Each walk is filled with stories and legends of this part of Ireland.

On Sunday, we jump in a boat out to the abandoned offshore island of Iniskea. Hear about how the islanders lived, of whaling, piracy and more.

On Monday, we stroll the southern Mullet peninsula, with its lovely hills and sandy beaches, giving beautiful 360 degree views.
