Relax in a County Mayo cottage in this remote corner of Ireland jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean, where a captivating blend of natural splendour awaits, with dazzling beaches, striking rock formations and dramatic peat bogs. Of course, all this wonderful scenery begs for outdoor recreation and activities include water sports, walking, hiking, riding, cycling, golf and superb angling - a prime example being the county town of Ballina on the River Moy, with its famous Ridge Pool brimming with salmon.

Visit the old town of Ballinrobe featuring a castle, corn market and beautiful race course. Not forgetting the nearby village of Cong, where John Wayne starred in 'The Quiet Man'. Discover underground caves, go fishing on two lakes, or dine out in style at Ashford Castle, once home to the Guinness Family. Explore Westport and its atmospheric tree-lined streets, or climb the religious mountain of Croagh Patrick - the town's magnificent backdrop. Or visit Mayo's other famous pilgrimage site at Knock.

Northern Mayo is steeped in history and the Céide Fields Visitors' Centre is not-to-be-missed, site of the world's most extensive Stone Age settlement, with houses and tombs preserved in peat amid a rare Neolithic landscape. Or fast forward to the 1850s and onwards at the National Museum of Ireland - Country Life.

And don't miss a trip to Achill Island, linked by bridge to the mainland and home to award-winning beaches, spectacular countryside and unrivalled opportunities for every activity imaginable. Add fabulous restaurants, old-fashioned pubs and traditional Irish music and you have all the ingredients for an unforgettable County Mayo cottage holiday.
