Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

You'll never get to know a town by stopping by for a quick look-see. Foxford is one of those Irish towns (really a village) that deserves a closer inspection. Firstly, the people are the salt of the earth, friendly and genuine with strangers. The riverwalk provides a pleasant venue to meditate along the rushing Moy River, that provides some of Europe's best salmon and trout fishing. Any of the pubs afford opportunities to share a pint, meet up and share stories with the locals. Sunday night at the Mayfly hotel's lounge rocks with traditional music played by neighbors and the occasional visiting fiddler or banjo player who are welcomed to sit in. Also, a room away is a gathering of folks joyfully having the craic with the recently revived Sean Os dancing. There are numerous walks and hiking trails emanating from Foxford and into the gorgeous surrounding mountins, hills, valleys and lakes, maps of which are readily available from shops or the tourist offices. Each trail or walk is rated for ease or difficulty. Best place to get a map,and the world famous products of the Foxford Woollen Mills is at the mill itself. That is reviewed elsewhere on this site. If one has but time for a short visit to Foxford, the mill is the place to see. Exceptional local and European cuisine is available at its restaurant. There is much more but I recommend that you find one of the local B&B's, and get friendly with your hosts and the locals to unlock the hidden treaures.By the time this is read, and with the help of the divine, County Mayo will e the 2013 All-Ireland GAA football champions! Not unlike the agony suffered as a Boston Red Sox fan, we Mayo fans are looking for redemption by winning the big prize for the first time since 1951!!! Up Mayo!!!

Consisting of a couple of grocery stores, a few pubs & a few takeaway food outlets, Foxford is surprisingly busy with a lot of passing traffic.

Home to the famous Woollen Mill & also Admiral William Brown, founder of the Argentine Navy.
Drive past the Woollen Mill & you will find a nice river walk promenade built to honour the Admiral.

Drive towards Pontoon on the R318, passing the railway station & on the left hand side you will find 3 beaches on Lough Cullin.

Located half way between Ballina & Castlebar & close to Lough Conn & Lough Cullin

This is a quaint Friendly town. We walked around the town in search of my friends relatives. We looked for the Post Office, where my friend's great uncle had worked, but it was closed for lunch. We went the general store next door and spoke to Barbara, who said that Paddy was at a funeral, but she did remember my friend's great uncle. We walked across the street to the local Catholic church, where we found a list of their cemetary residents. We found several long lost relatives on the list.

We were in Foxford for a wedding recently and I took some time to wander arohnd before the ceremony. Its a wonderful country village with a main street of shops and pubs (like most Irish villages). The church is fantastic but what I loved the most was the amount of locals who use tractors to get around, genuinely brilliant.

What a tourist trap and incredible dump. Don't waste any time there! We spent about 90 minutes trying to find three trails that are supposed to start off there. There are plenty of signposts for them in the town but as soon as you get to the 'trailhead' (a parking lot in a residential area) there are no way marks whatsoever. After giving up and driving out of town, we realised that at least one of the trails was all the way along the busy N26. Maybe something for concrete and truck enthusiasts. The town itself was not nice at all with only few people around who seemed to avoid eye contact. The mills shop struck us as 10 times snootier than M&S. Not intending to go back there ever.

Foxford is famous for its woollen mills which are certainly worth visiting. However, there is very little else there.

We enjoyed staying at the Foxford Lodge with Brigitte's wonderful breakfasts. Eating 3 times in the Mayfly pub was tasty and pleasant! The people at the lovely Catholic church had a welcoming spirit. While Tom fished with a guide I hit the Woolen mills to complete our Christmas shopping for this year!!!
