Belmullet's unconventional streetscape skirts its waterfront and the town harbors a friendly, unpretentious attitude that harks back to an earlier time. Nestled in a quiet, northwest corner of the Irish coast, it's the place to go off-radar from the convoy of rental cars that blast their way along the Wild Atlantic Way, the popular trail that connects Ireland's western seaboard. Belmullet's real lure is its location as the capital and access point to the Mullet (or Erris) Peninsula, a windswept playground crammed with abandoned islands, ocean-carved blowholes, endless miles of beaches, rugged coastal trails, and an enormous skyline that lights up the night when the clouds retreat.
