Ballycroy, from the Irish meaning “town of the stacks” (hay or turf), is a village in County Mayo.

Ballycroy is home to one of Ireland’s National Parks, Ballycroy National Park, established in November 1998.

Access to the National Park can be gained by walking along the Bangor Trail, which itself has a long history possibly dating back to 16th century.

One of Ireland’s most scenic sailing experiences is the sea area from Bellacragher Bay to Innisbiggle Island to Achill Sound.

During the early Spring months, Ballycroy experiences a unique run of salmon which makes for excellent fishing.

The best fishing grounds off Ballycroy are north of Bulls Mouth, with fish such as pollack, cod, bass and dogfish in plentiful supply.
