Castlebar, Co. Mayo

Castlebar (Irish: Caisleán an Bharraigh) is the county town of, and at the centre of, County Mayo. It is a bustling town and is well known in the area for the variety of shopping that is available.

Castlebar is the location for important festivals and traditions, among which is the International Four Days Walk. A well-established blues music festival in venues across the town takes place on the weekend before the first Monday in June each year and the The Linenhall Arts Centre exhibits throughout the year. The Country Life section of the National Museum of Ireland in nearby Turlough is a 'must visit' attraction when in the area. Castlebar is also home to one of the main GAA stadiums in the west of Ireland and regularly hosts matches with 40,000+ fans.

The surrounding areas are great for walking and have some of the best fishing lakes in the West of Ireland. There are also most other outdoor activities that you can think of available from golf to horse trekking, diving to sailing.
