There’s no place like home. I love when I plan a trip to Mayo. Apart from seeing my beautiful family, I really enjoy the scenery, the beaches, the peace and quite and the wildness of the Wild Atlantic.
This trip wasn’t unlike any other with the exception that we were planning to cycle some the Green Way. Unfortunately it was too windy. So instead we done Claggan Mountain Coastal Trail followed by the Ballycroy National Park walk. Both are very easy and quick walks but the Wind from the Wild Atlantic definitely make it more fun.
The views are amazing but on the dull day that we got, you can’t really see how beautiful it is.
Onto the Ballycroy National Park. We were advised not to climb up to the top, as it was to windy and dangerous but the rebel inside me wouldn’t listen. This walk is only about 20-30mins, very easy to do. The views are incredible. For me there is no better feeling than enjoying complete quietness. I love having time to dream, enjoying peace and the wonders of the sea, the mountains and fresh air.
Mayo is a beautiful county, it’s my home and there is no where in the world that is this special to me.
