Visited here last month with a few members of my family. We were blessed with good weather so the views were outstanding. For such a small area it is filled with history. The information boards that have been out up were great and very interesting....More

Such a beautiful place. Must see Blacksod also is little piece of significant history. It is famously the lighthouse the allies used for the weather forecast on D-day 1944, and the landing was delayed by a day because of an inclement forecast.

This is the bottom of the Erris Peninsula, and it is a pretty place. On a clear day you will see right over to Achil and beyond.

The views of Blacksod Bay and the Blackrock Island are stunningly beautiful on a sunny day like today. For any Irish person it is also tinged with sadness for the crew of Rescue 116 who died here in the service of others in 2017. The...More

well worth taking the trip to see Black Sod and the scenery is beautiful with Achill Island across the bay with the sun shining on it, also all the beaches that you see around the peninsula.

Belmullet was a lot bigger than I expected, but worth the drive along the Wild Atlantic Way. The Blacksod Lighthouse is quite striking, and there's a lively downtown atmosphere. It's an intriguing, remote place that I'd like to spend an overnight in on my next...More

About as near as you can get to America without wings or getting wet. Without the lighthouse keeper D-Day may never have happened.

A very interesting place for people with interest in nostalgia. The lighthouse has a history of events in world war two. Nearby are religious monuments.
