Adventure, culture, history & natural beauty

St Muredach's Cathedral Ballina

Unrivalled scenery of the Wild Atlantic Way

The North Mayo region, in which Claddagh House Luxury Self-Catering Accommodation is centrally located, has everything you could want for your next family or group holiday on the Wild Atlantic Way. Its stark natural beauty surrounds you, but the coastline is where you will find the most awe-inspiring scenery. Wild and untamed it boasts the steep cliffs of Downpatrick Head and the Neolithic site of the Ceide Fields.


For walking enthusiasts, there are many choices, from a leisurely stroll along a windswept beach to a hike on a forest trail or the challenge of summiting a rugged peak.

Adventure in the great outdoors

The area also offers many adventure activities for the thrill seeker or the outdoors enthusiast including surfing at Enniscrone, windsurfing, kayaking, rock climbing, horse riding as well as miles of quiet roads to be explored by bicycle.

World-renowned fishing destination

Ballina and the surrounding area are probably best known for their world-class salmon fishing in both rivers and lakes. The River Moy which flows through the town of Ballina and nearby Lough Conn and Lough Cullen are all prodigious sources of salmon.

History and heritage

If your interests lie more towards the quieter pursuits, then you will not be left wanting. A range of museums, country houses, castles, churches and significant ruins are to be found in the area. Heritage and history are important elements of the life of this unspoiled landscape and its people.

Dining and entertainment

As we all know, holidays are not all about activities. Evenings spent dining with family and friends or raising a glass while listening to live traditional music are just as important. Claddagh House Luxury Self-Catering Accommodation is close to all the restaurants, bars, and entertainment of Ballina, Enniscrone and, a little further afield, Sligo town.

Information on the local area

Your hosts Louise and Gourlay will be delighted to provide you with further information and ideas for what to do and see on your stay in the Ballina area. The local tourist office is also a useful resource when planning a tour or daytrip to further explore the region.
