Supermarket near Cong

Hi all

We are a party of 10 travelling to Cong for a week at the end of May, we know the area as have travelled through previously and would like to know the location of the nearest large supermarket. Our thoughts are it could be the Lidl in Tuam and Joyce's in Headford.

There's a Tesco Superstore in Westport. That might be about the same distance as Tuam. I just like Tesco better than Lidl.

Hi vegasking

No need to go to Tuam or Westport for a supermarket.

Living in the area, I always shopped in Ballinrobe (or Castlebar for the "bigger" shops). There's a Tesco and Supervalu in Ballinrobe or Joyces in Headford and O'Connor's shop in Cong itself to pick up daily essentials.

If you want some of the best meat in Ireland, tip over to Molloy's butchers in Shrule. He slaughters his own meat, and will probably be able to point out what field the beast lived in. I still often pop in and buy meat from him when over that way and have bought whole lambs for the freezer.

Have a great time. The area around Cong is a great place to stay and base yourself to experience all the area has to offer.

Thanks to all and Little Pumpkin I wasn't aware of the Tescos in Ballinrobe which may actually offer the easiest solution although I do think we shall shop in Cong too.
