The Barony of Erris is situated on the north west corner of Mayo. It is bordered by Broadhaven Bay on the north west corner, Blacksod Bay on the south west corner with the wild Atlantic due west with the rest of Mayo to the east. Lanmdwards, it stretches from Blacksod at the end of the Mullet Penninsula on the west to Corick Bridge on the East and from the seaside village of Portacloy on the North to Innisbiggle on the south. Most of Erris is included in map number 22 of the Ordinance Survey of Ireland Discovery Series of maps.
Erris has varied scenery including majestic cliffs and wind swept coasts; miles of almost deserted white sandy clean beaches (two of which - Elly and Mullaghroe have Blue Flag status); uninhabited islands, and of course the largest area of blanketed bog in Europe.
The galleries below give a small taste of what lies in store for the visitor to Erris. Certainly, this is a place worth a visit.
