Where to pick cockles and mussels in Mayo

There is nothing better during the autumn and winter months than spending an hour or two picking cockles and mussels on one of Mayo’s magnificent Wild Atlantic Way beaches.


A day on Aughleam beach

Towards the most southerly end of the Mullet, you will come to the lovely village of Aughleam (Eachléim). The village is surrounded by beautiful white-sand beaches that are quiet even at the height of summer.
