County Mayo is on the west coast of Ireland. Its scenery ranges from verdant to desertlike, with rocky cliffs at the Atlantic coast. Clew Bay is dotted with small, steep-sided islands, including Clare Island. At the eastern end of the bay, Westport town is known for its Georgian architecture and Westport House, a mansion with dungeons. Nearby is Croagh Patrick, a mountain linked to St. Patrick.
Often referred to as the Emerald Isle, Ireland has vibrant cities tucked beside cozy bays and sheer cliffs. Creative Irish souls include: James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, W.B Yeats, Seamus Heaney and George Bernard Shaw. Guinness, Jameson, Bushmills, and Kilkenny are favoured tipples. Hearty stews and rugged landscapes. Pubs with Irish music: craic agus ceoil. What's not to love?!
