Foxford Travel Guide


As you travel from Turlough northeast to Ballina, you have a choice of two routes. The longer and more scenic is via the tiny, wooded village of Pontoon, skirting the western shore of Lough Conn and passing through the rough bogland of the Glen of Nephin, beneath the dramatic heather-clad slopes of Nephin Mountain (2,653 feet) to Crossmolina and Ballina. The shorter route follows the N5 and N58 to Foxford, a pretty village with several crafts and antiques shops.
