Outdoor Activities
Golf Courses
Nearby Mulranny has a 9 hole links seaside course which is much enjoyed by anyone who has played there. Part of its charm is the fact that you can drive up and play having posted your green fee through a door in the mobile home which is the course’s club house.  Westport offers an 18 hole Championship course set in 260 acres of parkland for a more serious game. Booking essential   www.westportgolfclub.com
For a special game it is worth the drive to Carne Golf Links ( about an hour). The course is situated in magnificent unspoiled sand dunes overlooking Blacksod Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. It was the last links course to be designed by the late Eddie Hackett and it is now believed by many who have played it to be his greatest challenge.
