Blacksod Bay

The unspoilt and quiet Blacksod village (An Fód Dubh) is situated along the wild Atlantic coast, at the southernmost tip of the Mullet Peninsula, 20 km south of Belmullet, Co. Mayo.

Blacksod is celebrated for its’ stunning natural beauty, golden beaches, scenic coastal roads, mystic Islands and wild bog land.

2 Blue Flag Beaches at Elly Bay and Mullaghroe, and miles of rugged Atlantic coastline, make Blacksod the perfect location to relax and get away from it all.

Steeped in ancient history and folklore, Blacksod is part of the Mayo Gaeltacht where the Irish language is alive and still in everyday use. Coláiste U.I.S.C.E, an Irish language summer college is located nearby where students from all over Ireland and abroad travel to improve their Irish skills.

The area provides the ideal terrain for walking, hiking, cycling, and water-based activities such as  fishing, diving, surfing, wind-surfing, sailing and more.

You will find Léim Siar the perfect place to stay during your time exploring the Mullet Peninsula.
