Discovery Points

Located all along the Wild Atlantic route are highlighted 159 'Discovery Points'. These will be distinct sites, large and small, each chosen for their potential to offer visitors an authentic and intimate experience of the natural and wild landscape and seascape. In other words, iconic must-see sights along Ireland’s west coast.

Mayo lays claim to 23 Discovery Points along its 543km coastal drive.  Below are some images of our personal favourites.
