At the Mulranny Park Hotel Mayo we offer a range of interesting and exciting activities to help make your stay with us even more memorable and enjoyable.
BLUE FLAG BEACHES - Mulranny has 2 beaches safe for swimming and great for walking
across the road from the Mulranny Park Hotel, on the west end of Mulranny village, a causeway and wooden bridge across Trawoughter Bay lead to Mulranny beach, which has picnic facilities and toilets, as well as a lifeguard during the summer months.
Inland from the beach is a rare large saltwater marsh, with typical species such as thrift, sea plantain, salt marsh grass, rushes and sedges, sea pimpernel with glassword and annual seablite further down towards the sea. The marsh also features various shorebirds, including curlew, widgeon, grey plover, godwits, oyster-catchers, dunlins, sand pipers, terns and gulls.
There is also a small car park at the beach. To reach the car park, take the first left after the village and continue less than a half a kilometre to the entrance, following the signs. Please see our local Activity Map & Greenway Adventures Brochure to explore the great the outdoors.
ACHILL ISLAND - Achill
is the outdoor capital of the West and is only a 10 minute drive from the hotel. Ireland’s largest offshore Island is joined to the mainland by a bridge at Achill sound. The famous Atlantic Drive around the island is a must. These 266 sq. miles of island has the distinction of having received five European blue flag beach awards.

CROAGH PATRICK - This stiff climb on Irelands Holy Mountain is rewarded by a huge sense of achievement and panoramic views. The hotel overlooks Croagh Patrick across Clew Bay. Click here for more information on Croagh Patrick.
Croagh Patrick is situated five miles from the picturesque town of Westport
and the mountain's conical shape soars majestically above the surrounding countryside.
Magnificent views of Clew Bay and the surrounding south Mayo countryside are to be had from all stages of the ascent of the mountain. Follow the steps of Patrick and in doing so meet people from far and near.
