The visitor center provides lots of information on the area, has a pretty café and a little boardwalk to give you a feel of the vastness of the park. In fact, after visiting we decided we need another weekend to fit North Mayo in! However, this is only a part of the park, the park covers the whole surrounding area up to Achill etc. You can’t avoid the park if you are going to Achill or up to Erris Peninsula via Belmullet. Its beautiful rugged landscape..
There is a night sky viewing point advertised on the Claggan boardwalk. Do stop there if you can.. however if you find yourself driving late on a clear night, simply take a back road off the main routes and park up to enjoy the starry skies.
