Mayo is Ireland’s foremost destination for cycle tourists and it has worked hard to achieve that accolade. A variety of trails are available from dedicated cycle hubs, as well as Ireland’s longest designated cycling and walking trail.

Running 43.5km around the eastern and Northern stretches of Clew Bay, it is one of Ireland’s fastest growing and most sought-after tourist attractions and the longest designated cycling and walking trail in the country.

Water Sports

 

 

Westport’s perfect position on the shores of Clew Bay means that there are literally hundreds of options for the water sports enthusiast. Surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing, swimming, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking and RIB tours are all just minutes away from Westport.

The Great Western Lakes of Galway and Mayo are recognised as the greatest wild brown trout fisheries in the world. Loughs Corrib, Mask, Carra and Conn are within easy drive of Westport. There are also a number of important river systems nearby that give great sport for the fisherman. What’s the best way to experience Clew Bay? Head on a boat trip around Clew Bay, its islands, coves, beaches to watch its wildlife including seals.

 

Kayaking

 

 

Mayo has lots of options for kayaking. There are plenty of rivers and lakes to explore around the county for more experienced paddlers, but by far the most popular option is sea kayaking in Clew Bay and beyond.

A sea kayak allows you to experience Clew Bay in a completely different way to any other boat. The maneuverability and quietness of the sea kayak means that you can slowly traverse the coastal islands seeing wildlife and birds up close, explore cliffs and caves near Westport and visit places no other boat can reach.
