Mayo North

  • Mayo is a county that is blessed with stunning natural beauty and an array of wonderful places to see and visit - and one of those is the truly astounding Ballycroy National Park. One of just six national parks in the country, Ballycroy offers an unspoilt wilderness for hikers and walkers that matches any in Ireland or indeed the world. Located along the Wild Atlantic Way, the 11,000 hectare park really needs to be seen to be appreciated. Midwest Radio recently visited the Visitor's Centre in Ballycroy to find out more about the centre and all that is on offer in the Park with Guide Margaret Flaherty. 

     

  • It's important that people considering a staycation this Summer would support tourism providers in their own region.

    That's according to Ann Marie Flynn, Manager of Mayo North Tourism.

    Visitors can enjoy travelling the Wild Atlantic Way and the wide open spaces of Mayo beaches, visit local museums and galleries and enjoy the local hotels, bars, restaurants and cafés.

  • The hospitality & tourism sector has expressed disappointment that last night's Living with Covid announcement from the Taoiseach did not include a clear path to reopening for the hard-hit sector.

    There are currently around 150,000 people from the hospitality sector receiving the Pandemic Unemployment Payment (PUP) which will now be extended until June 30th.

    Mayo North Tourism says there is a lot of worry and concern within the industry at the moment.

    Anne-Marie Flynn who is the manager of Mayo North Tourism says local businesses need more support from Government in order to protect the sector.
