Discover Louisburgh

Louisburgh is a quaint, picturesque seaside town, situated on the rugged Atlantic Coast of Ireland, on the Wild Atlantic Way right on the southwest corner of Clew Bay in Co Mayo.

It is an area that’s rich in coastal beauty. In fact, the drive into town from any direction is sure to be a visual treat (if you’re arriving by day, of course).

From the nearby town of Westport, you would take the R335, which is bordered on one side by the majestic Croagh Patrick, and on the other by the stunning beauty of Clew Bay. Alternatively, you might arrive from Leenane, which will also take you through incredible scenery, including the Delphi Valley.

For those who love outdoor leisure activities, Louisburgh is truly a paradise with plenty to do. We enjoy fair weather for much of the year (it can get a little rainy, but storms are rare). The area is home to abundant cycling trails, the gorgeous Bunowen River, Clew Bay with its unique geological formations, the Atlantic Ocean, and of course we’re just a stone’s throw (or two) from Croagh Patrick on the incredible Wild Atlantic Way.

About Louisburgh

History buffs will appreciate the abundance of archaeological sites scattered around the area, as Louisburgh is part of the Clew Bay Archaeological Trail. Hiring one of our Fat Bikes will help you get to even the most difficult of sites to access.

In all, Louisburgh is a terrific place to visit, and Wild Atlantic Leisure is pleased to play a role in facilitating access to the surrounding area by providing bike hire (to explore the many trails), diving equipment (for exploring the hidden depths of Clew Bay), and a range of water sport equipment so the whole family can enjoy the natural splendour of the Bunowen River and Clew Bay.

Granuaile Centre


Louisburgh although a modest sized town has a decent offering of restaurants as well as atmospheric local pubs where you can either find yourself entrenched in the most authentic impromptu traditional music sessions or having a quiet drink and chat if that is your choosing.

Not too far from the centre of town, the Glen Keen Farm offers an excellent excursion where you can watch the sheep dogs at work and also enjoy a delightful meal, with some more unusual items on the menu such as crab and corn chowder, and an amazing variety of cakes and sweets.
