10 Photos That Prove Mayo Is The Most Beautiful County In Ireland

You may argue that your county is nicer than ours but after seeing the 10 photos below you’ll want to pack a bag and come here for a long weekend at least.

10: Downpatrick Head

Sitting out in the wild Atlantic Ocean, Downpatrick Head is an area of unrivalled coastal beauty and historical importance.




9:Ashford Castle 

The gate of the Castle is in Co.Mayo and thats good enough for us.



8 : Blousers – Westport Co.Mayo

Visit the pub from the famous Guinness TV Advert and look out for the framed plug on the wall.

Blousers Pub situated in the beautiful town of Westport was reopened a couple of years ago by Thomas O'Grady and he has done a wonderful job at mixing old and new to create a great spot at all times of day. The interior is one of minimalism which is rare to see in a busy town around Ireland.  It reminded me of Bergins in Ennis a little. And both would be on my list to visit for any pub fan. The building itself is one of Westports oldest hostelries and once welcomed Eamon De Velera where he gave a speech from the window. It closed in 2016 but Thomas took on the challenge of keeping the famous pub going and it seems he is doing a great job, offering touring visitors a taster of poitin and plenty of local history. #mypub #westport
