Mulranny, from the Irish meaning “the hill-brow of the ferns”, is a seaside village on the isthmus between Clew Bay and Blacksod Bay in County Mayo.
Located at the foot of the Nephin Mountain Range, Mulranny has a number of blue flag beaches and a coastal lagoon.
Mulranny lies on the beautiful 42 km Great Western Greenway, which runs between Westport and Achill.
The seashore in Mulranny is fringed by Mediterranean heath, a plant that in Ireland is restricted to county Mayo.
Angling enthusiasts can enjoy shore fishing or sea angling, both of which can be arranged locally.
In 2011, Mulranny was a winner of the European Destination of Excellence award.
Rossturk Castle is a historic castle close to Mulranny. It was one of the strongholds of the famous O’ Malley Clan and the pirate queen, Grace O’Malley (Granuaile).
