Mayo is a perfect county for exploring and enjoying the wonderful coastline which is dotted with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Many of the county’s beaches are perfect for walking, swimming and a variety of watersports. From Ross Strand in North Mayo to Silver Strand near Louisburgh, Keem Bay in Achill and Elly Bay near Belmullet, there is always a beautiful beach to explore in Mayo.
Mayo's Beach Byelaws have been updated, effective from June 1st 2022. We now have some restrictions on dogs on Blue Flag and potential Blue Flag beaches, in keeping with the demands of the International Blue Flag Jury. Dogs are not permitted in the Blue Flag areas of the beaches during the summer bathing season between the hours of 12:00-18:30, (exemptions detailed in the byelaws).
Thank you for your help and cooperation keeping our beautiful Blue Flag beaches clean.
