Was there a few years ago-very impressive area-and a lovely drive!
Enjoyed it -particularly because it was a lovely clear and warm day!

“Very pictureseque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

Despite the fact that you have to drive through horrible Bellmullet to get there (sorry Bellmullet - but you are horrible!), Blacksod it worth it. It's got lovely views of Achill and some other islands, a charming fishing port, and some really lovely beaches. If it's views you're after - you won't be disappointed here.

“Beautiful bay at the edge of Ireland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

We have been here five times and never tire of the place.
This is a very quiet picturesque bay on the north Mayo coast.
There are numerous wonderful sandy beaches where you can stroll for hours without meeting a soul. We traveled down to Eachléim where our son was studying in the ghaeltacht. Great views to the south of Achil Head. The bay has its own climate, it could be raining inland but the peninsula and bay may be basking in sunshine.

“Wild and wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2012

Went to Blacksod Bay as part of a 50th birthday celebration and now we can see why they travel there whenever they can get away from Dublin. Perfect for the out-doorsy type - no shopping here- and great for swimming, diving and all that sort of thing!
