  • Got a late recommendation to visit on our travels and wasn't disappointed. Beautiful place with amazing views.
  • One of those breathtaking cliffs of Ireland! It's still very natural looking, you can get on the edge of the cliffs. Lots of birds have their nest there, it's super cute!
  • If you are in the North Mayo area then Downpatrick Head is a must visit, especially on a windy day. They have the most wonderful walk by the cliffs. Watch the waves hit the rocks. This is certainly a hidden gem. It is also free to visit.
  • Always a nice place at the sea, beautiful views here.
  • Nature....More then wonderfull
