Dún Caocháin is an area of great physical beauty and contrast in north Mayo, which has retained many of its old traditions and culture. A local guidebook is available which contains five walks of variable length and challenge, taking you through some spectacular cliff scenery, stretching westwards from Belderrig to Benwee Hd. and taking in Porturlin and Portacloy.
Afterwards why not enjoy an evening of traditional music and chat in the local pubs.
Guided or self-guided tours available with transport, meals and accommodation all organised.

"A unique and innovative model in the preservation of the Irish language, landscape and culture" Featuring this beautiful Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) area in the north western corner of Erris, the CD ROM is a perfect example of the innovative projects made possible by new media. The interactive, multiple media types on this bi-lingual CD ROM including video of the area, offer a detailed look at a relatively unknown but important part of Ireland.
