Bangor Erris is the gateway to the Erris Peninsula linking Belmullet with Ballina and Westport. It is a beautiful picturesque town located on the banks of the River Owenmore. The town has a central location and along with the superb world renowned wild salmon and sea-trout and brown fishing the area has to offer there also are many other attractive tourist activities for anyone wishing to visit North Mayo. Bangor Erris nestles at the foot of the Bangor Trail, a 22 mile mountain pass across the Nephin Beg Mountain Range to Newport, and there are many beautiful walks including the ‘Bangor Trail’ and the ‘Western Way’.
Still waiting for the weather to improve,so we try and catch the first salmon of the 2016 season. Lake still very high!
