Downpatrick Head

Ceann Dhún PádraigCounty Mayo

The gigantic seastack Dún Briste is one of the highlights of the rugged Atlantic coast in northern Mayo. Reaching a height of nearly 50 meters, the rock is visible from afar and is one of the striking  landmarks of the Wild Atlantic Way.

Downpatrick Head was named after Irelands patron saint St. Patrick, who founded a church on the narrow land tongue.
