Ballina Guide

Guide

Ballina is the largest town in County Mayo and is renowned for its hospitality and wide range of accommodation. It is home to the River Moy, internationally acknowledged as a superb salmon fishery.

On the east side of the river lie the ancient Rosserk Friary, dating back to the 14th century and the ruins of Moyne Abbey. They are now overshadowed by St Muredach's Cathedral, an imposing Victorian structure on the riverbank. In July every year, Ballina hots up, with the onset of the Street Festival and Arts Week, which provides a barrage of fun, free events and activities for children and adults. Music, varying from traditional to country and western, rock 'n roll and samba, fills the streets all week long.

Ballina is a paradise for keen fishermen, and its status as one of the most famous salmon angling venues in the world draws visitors from far and wide. Golfing is also extremely popular, and there are two golf courses in the town itself, as well as three courses within driving distance. There is a public swimming pool catering for the whole family and Enniscrone beach is only six miles away. The Moy valley is an ideal location for walking, and there are numerous trail options, including the historical tour of Ballina. The town is known for its many excellent pubs and its variety of nightclubs and restaurants, including the award winning ‘Crockets on the Quay’.

Nearby attractions include; the Ceide Fields in Ballycastle, the oldest field systems in the world, and the working Foxford Woollen Mills, founded in 1892.

Ballina and the Moy valley can be accessed by car via National Primary Routes. Irish Rail and Bus Eireann offer daily passenger services to and from Ballina. Knock International Airport and Sligo Regional Airport are both situated nearby.

Frequently asked questions

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
