The Mayo Hostel - Traenlaur Lodge - is truly charming - a home away from home! A former hunting lodge - it is situated in an idyllic location and boasts its own private harbour and pier!!
Newport is a small picturesque town located on the north-east corner of Clew Bay. It stands at the entrance to the Bangor Trail, a 26 mile walking route. A beautiful feature of the town is its seven arch viaduct, built in 1892 to carry the Westport to Achill railway line.
As well as a calm, tranquil atmosphere in Traenlaur Lodge, there are great walking, cycling, fishing, and swimming on the lake amid the wonderful peace and solitude. Within walking distance are many sites of historical and archaeological interest.
