    Croagh Patrick is the Holy mountain of Ireland, situated on the south of Clew bay, near the towns of Westport and Castlebar. If you are into walking up mountains then go for it. The national apostle, St. Patrick, is said to have spent forty days and nights on the summit of Croagh Patrick, fasting and praying for the people of Ireland around the middle of the fifth century. Since early Christian times, a national pilgrimage to Croagh Patrick has taken place on the last Sunday in July each year.

    Achill Island is home to five picture postcard Blue Flag beaches, some of Europe's highest cliffs and large tracts of blanket bog sweeping over the island's two peaks and down to the shore. This windswept Island, the largest of Ireland's offshore Islands, has attracted people to its shores for generations and now you can drive across to it. Once on the Island there is spectacular Atlantic Drive which takes one along a 40 km drive that includes the best of the Islands scenery. Walking and cycling along the quiet lanes and trails is also a wonderful way to discover the island's interior. The Great Western Greenway is a new 42 km long track for cyclists, walkers and runners which follows the route of the former Achill to Westport railway line. There are plenty of opportunities to fish, surf, dive and kayak here. There are also a number of well renowned craft shops and art galleries to explore as well as numerous festivals to attend.

Start your tour in 1757 and discover how Irish whiskey was made in decades past. You'll see the old mash tuns and fermenters, still in their original positions. You can also get close to the iconic waterwheel which once powered the whole distillery and kept whiskey flowing through Kilbeggan.
