About the location


Killala 8.6 miles; Ballina 16.4 miles.

The quaint village of Ballycastle is located near the beautiful rugged coastline of north Mayo, and is superbly situated just a short distance from Downpatrick Head, one of the main points of interest on the Wild Atlantic Way. The lovely Stags of Broadhaven, 600 million year old rocky islets are located a few miles further west. Ballycastle is a small but thriving village, an easy drive from the lively towns of Ballina, Crossmolina and Killala, where the 12.5km "Monasteries of the Moy" cycling greenway is open to Ballina. The ancestry and heritage of the local area can be experienced at the Ceide Fields Centre, where you can visit the Interpretative Centre set beside one of the world’s oldest Stone Age monuments. The spectacular cliffs at Ceide reach 365 metres and offer sensational, panoramic views, while the wider area also offers an abundance of splendid sandy beaches. The coastal waters around Ballycastle are becoming increasingly popular for scuba diving and other water activities, however if you prefer a more relaxing coastal holiday, the sandy beaches are ideal for a leisurely stroll.
