One might think that there is little to say about a small town in North Mayo. This tour will change that. The tour takes two hours but there are so many stories that the tour could take much longer!

Stopped by Blacksod Lighthouse to find a lovely "Coffee Pod" has opened along side the pier. The hostess offered teas and coffee and basic snacks like chocolate bars, crisps and soft drinks which was a great surprise as there were no other shops in the area. We were also offered information on how to arrange a trip to Inis Gé and other local heritage sites like the derelict Deirbhile's chapel and a Napoleonic era signal tower in the area known locally as Glosh Tower.

This place is beautiful but at the time we visited the weather was beautiful & the scenery was stunning. The pier at Blacksod was busy with fishing boats & lots of other boats used for pleasure & reward. Visitors can get a boat or catamaran from the pier to the nearby Inniskea islands or have a day's fishing in the bay. The Inniskea islands are less than a 30 minute trip away & though they are now uninhabited, there are pristine beaches, ruins of the houses of previous residents, & historical sites & other interesting sites. Blacksod lighthouse is historical in its own right because it is from this very place that the weather signal for the allied troops to land at Normandy was sent in 1944. Whatever the weather, this is a delightful place to visit.

This is more of an area than just the lighthouse which is beautiful but not opened to the public yet, the road loops around the shore to take in Faulmore, Dearbhla's well, ruins of the old church, beaches and stunning views over Achill the Iniskea Islands and Blackrock Lighthouse in the distance. The pier is a working pier with local boats unloading in the evening, I believe this is where the boats taking day trippers also depart. This area is well worth touring.

We stayed in Belmullet for a wedding. While visiting the area, we had the opportunity to enjoy Blacksod Bay. The scenery is wonderful and the lighthouse made it even better. There are so many opportunities for amazing photographs, so many angles, and different vantage points to include the lighthouse. Sunrises and Sunset coloring accent the beauty.
