Killala Quay

Killala is a picturesque seaside village

Killala (in Irish: Cill Ala) is a picturesque seaside village six and a half miles north-west of Ballina in north Mayo. The town of Killala is famous in Irish history for the part it played in the 1798 rebellion - "The Year of the French".

There are beautiful, unspoilt beaches in the region, including nearby Ross - a Blue Flag beach, excellent for swimming and other watersports. Seals can often be seen in Killala Bay or nearby Bartra Island.

The Weekend Painting Retreat at Creevagh in Killala is suitable for those who have experience with painting (acrylics or oils) or those who are beginning to paint, but would like to improve their technique and broaden their experience. Drawing inspiration from the natural environment, participants focus on observation of form and interpretation of the landscape through colour, light and space.

Based in the historic town of Killala, Wild Atlantic Cultural Tours offer a range of unique and interesting cultural experiences - day tours and holiday packages - along the wild north coast of Mayo, Ireland.
