Attractions near Knock Airport

Knock is a small town, but on the 21st of August in 1879, two women from the village report a vision of the Virgin Mary in the local church yard. This was the start of the legend of Knock that has over the years, turned this obscure little place into the republic's most visited place, and an important site of international pilgrimage. The Knock Folk Museum is a definite 'must visit'.

The village is not the only attraction however. The region is only a short drive from the wild west Irish coast with its miles of pristine sandy beaches. Inland, lakes and majestic mountains dominate. Small hamlets, each with their pubs and small, picturesque cottages, abound and the traveller is assured of a traditional, warm Irish welcome.

For the sportsman, Eire offers some of the best fishing to be had anywhere. Riding, hiking, water sports and mountain cycling are commonly available, and championship class golf courses seem to be around every corner.

County Mayo boasts many historical sites and museums reflecting its historical past. One good example that repays a visit is the Museum of Country Life near Castlebar.

Knock Airport Hotels

The airport has no Hotel accommodation on site, however Knock itself has the Belmont 3 star hotel and the village has several bed and breakfast establishments, set up to cater for some of one and a half million tourists who visit the town on a pilgrimage to the shrine each year. Other good hotels can be found just up the road in Mayo including the Cill Aodain Hotel, the Ridgepool Hotel and the un-starred but warm and friendly Hogan's Hotel
