From the paradise of Belleek Woods, to the history and heritage of Belleek Castle and the Jackie Clarke Collection, to the buzz of the town with its Georgian streetscapes, to the flourishing food and restaurant culture, and the newly opened Connacht Whiskey Distillery, there is something for everyone to savour in the capital of North Mayo.
North Mayo region
Ballina has officially been designated as The Salmon Capital Of Ireland, by virtue of the quality of angling available on the River Moy. This status is echoed throughout the town with dedicated walkways along the river where tourists can observe anglers at the world renowned pools, beats and weirs. And of course, our own Ballina Salmon Festival! Among the town’s impressive vantage points are the town’s striking angling-themed pedestrian bridge, the Salmon Weir Bridge, and nearby Cathedral walk.
