An ideal base for activities such as walking, golfing, Kyacking and only 20 mins from Knock airport. Also famous for our farm to fork organic restaurant "The Cheeky Pig".

The Mayfly Hotel and its surroundings are an idyllic expression of raw rural beauty, hosting some of the best fishing in Ireland. Foxford is an angler’s paradise, with an abundance of salmon and sea trout teeming in its nearby waters. The hotel is 50 yards from the world-famous Tiernans Fish & Tackle shop.

Each of the 10 hotel bedrooms have been completely refurbished with a soothing interior, complete with state-of-the-art deluxe bathrooms, television, direct dial telephone, hairdryer, and tea- and coffee-making facilities on request.

The Poachers Bar & Restaurant is the trendiest watering hole in the vibrant town of Foxford. Open daily, Poacher’s Bar & Restaurant serves the finest beers, whiskies, wines, and great food. The relaxed and friendly environment of the bar will make you feel at ease, whether you are on a 30 minute lunch break or looking for a good night out. There is live music every weekend, with the highlight being the resident Le Chéile traditional Irish music session every Sunday night.

This year we introduced our new restaurant The Cheeky Pig, The ethos of our restaurant is quality farm to fork dishes prepared by award winning chef Lee Byrne.

The River Moy is rated as one of the best salmon rivers in Europe, with catches of between 8,000 and 10,000 wild Atlantic salmon annually to the rod and line. This is, of course, fishing country but there is also a plethora of golf courses to explore and hikes to undertake. Nearby is the start of the Foxford Way, one of Mayo’s finest walks, an 86km long route with the Ox Mountains on one side and the unique Nephin Mountain on the other. For those interested in heritage and culture, there is the Foxford Woollen Mills Visitor Centre, or the Michael Davitt Museum.
