JOMO Weekend on The Mullet Peninsula

JOMO Weekend on The Mullet Peninsula

JOMO Weekend is three days of fabulous, relaxed walking in northwest Mayo, taking place over at the end of June.

For this Joy of Missing Out event, 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!

Location : The Mullet Peninsula occupies the far NW 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.

Level : Easy to moderate.

Duration : Friday evening to Monday afternoon (3 nights; 2.5 days walking)

Description :

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 : Day trip by boat 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 nights B&B. It happens to be located right beside a great West of Ireland pub.


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!

Unfortunately, as there is only one B&B in Blacksod, of limited capacity, single room bookings are not available for this weekend.

Not included : Your return train trip to Castlebar, drinks and miscellaneous purchases.

Please note : JOMO Weekend is exactly what it says on the tin. It’s about the joy of missing out. This is a weekend for you to switch off and tune out. Everybody who attends is kindly requested to bide by this request. No Google, no Facebook, no news… Trust me; you’ll love it!
