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 beautiful scene and the tragedy are inextricably linked.

We decided to travel to Westport for our weekend break away. I remember that terrible tragedy where the crew of Rescue 116 sadly lost their lives. It will soon be a year since that fateful night and we felt compelled to visit Blacksod and pay our respects to Captain Dara Fitzpatrick, Captain Mark Duffy, Ciarán Smith, and Paul Ormsby. The views of the surrounding mountains and the sound of the sea was just so peaceful.

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.
