There is also a high concentration of ancient burial monuments around the county. The scenery becomes ever more spectacular as you explore. Drive towards Newport and Mulranny or Louisburgh and Doolough. The Céide Fields of Mayo have exposed 2,000 acres of stone walled fields built over hills and valleys with a unique interpretative centre. There are mountains, lakes and sea, even islands as Achill is connected to the mainland. Wet day or dry day, you'll find plenty to do.
