Ballinrobe is located in the heart of the lake district of South Mayo, on the banks of the river Robe.
Dating back to 1390, Ballinrobe is one of the oldest towns in Mayo.
In 1935, Lithuanian Feliksas Vaitkus landed his plane, Lituanica II, near Ballinrobe. He was the sixth person to make a successful transatlantic flight with a single engine, single seat airplane.
Dubbed “The Lake Angling Capital of the West” the Ballinrobe district has 60,000 acres of brown trout fishing between Lough Corrib and Lough Mask.
There is also a lovely river walk called the Bowers Walk.
