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.

    A very well marked path that took us 1.5 hours. We wore boots but it wasn’t boggy at all and shoes would have been fine. We had the path to ourselves and the views were really nice. It is busier at weekends and there is a coffee van at the parking lot then.

    Easy to find but not quite as expected, probably because the sea was quite calm at the time. Worth visiting if you're within the vicinity.

    A wonderful gem in the Belmullet town. The swimming club are an example to us all. A wonderful asset for adults and kids alike.

    Black Ditch Loop (Red way marked) - c.12kms. Allow 3 hours to explore the breathtaking scenery and clifftop views over the stunning Broadhaven Bay, with views across to the Stags of Broadhaven. Moderate level walk - extremely enjoyable!

    visited on a beautiful, warm, dry, still day. A sense of peace in the area. Interesting old rural area right by the sea

    We played 27 here as if you make the trip here, you might as well play the whole 27. We started with the Hackett Links, I understand they switch them up every other day, which causes some confusion. We got caddies and I recommend doing so. My caddie was Scott and he was excellent.
    One member of the group didn’t enjoy the course, of course he played the worst of the group.
    We had a very good weather day to play, a fair amount of wind, but not too crazy and zero rain. The course is hard, but IMO fair. I’m a 14 handicap and was able to hit a driver on majority of all par 4’s and 5’s. Something I can’t say about other link style courses we played.
    Some beautiful sights throughout the course, and according to our caddie the middle 9 (or our next 9 on this day) have the best views.
    Greens were very slow, which they were all week at all courses.
    After playing, make sure you stop by McDonnells and have a Guinness

    We have just done the cliff section of the Benwee Head walk and the scenery is fantastic. We parked at Portacloy beach (there is a small parking area) and then followed the very well signposted path all along the cliffs and then back again, which took us 3 hours. The path bypasses the first headland which has the “Eire” sign in the ground but it is well worth going to the tip to see the views. The first half of the walk is the best and the ground isn’t boggy. After that it was boggy in places, although we could have managed in walking shoes rather than our boots.

    We arrived out here to do a bit of a hike after a long drive to find this cool surprise. We spent sometime just exploring the area. The scenery is beautiful and the setting has a mystical feel about it. It is a great spot for some scenic photo, especially around sunset. If you have some spare time whilst in the area, this is place worth having a look at.

    Great craic. Padraig is a most welcoming publican. Great pub with a magnificent pint of Guinness. If in the area make sure you stop for a pint.

    This is my first time eating here. My mother, husband and 4 year old son had a reservation for dinner for 6pm. The staff were friendly and efficient. Tables were well spaced and we were assured that the restaurant has an air filtration system as well.
    The service was quick, the food was fabulous and the portions were extremely generous.
    The manager was really friendly and when I asked if he had a booster seat for my four year old he went out to his own car and loaned us one of his children’s seat. They really went above and beyond. You should eat here if you’re ever in Belmullet!

    Visited centre for a bit of lunch and a game of bowling. The soup was piping hot but there was no gluten free bread available with it. This was very disappointing as it's easy to access gluten free products and bread can be easily frozen and defrosted. The bowling was great fun and the guy in charge was very helpful and friendly. I had contacted the centre by email prior to visiting to ask about opening times on God Friday and their response was very prompt. Toilet facilities were very clean.

    Absolutely amazing trip. A friend and I headed our last Saturday, smashing way to spend an afternoon and got a swim in on the beach after a fab tour. Thank you all so much.
