If you can not find enough things to do on the Island (doubtful) then the Island has road links to nearby Mulranny which is just 18 km away. Ballycroy National Park (30km away) is simply lovely and is well worthy of a visit. It hosts a visitor centre that has a lot of interesting information about nature and local history, with a nice café too.
The historic town of Westport (45km away) has more shopping and entertainment and is well known for the Westport House & Gardens, The Coffin Ship Memorial and Croagh Patrick and it's stunning views across the 365 islands of Clew Bay.
Castlebar (50km away) offers a much wider range of shops, restaurants and bars, along with a cinema, vibrant market, The Royal Theatre & Event Centre, Mayo Memorial Peace Park and nearby, the National Museum of Ireland. We suggest that you do your full week's shopping here, before driving to the Island, as you will find a better choice and availability (possibly cheaper too).
