Arts and Culture
There's no better place to enjoy both art and culture than at two of the
excellent Arts festivals held in the West of Ireland each year -
Galway and Westport.
Details on the Westport Arts Festival
can be found in the 'Festivals' section of Local & Leisure.
Details on the Galway Arts Festival
can be obtained from your local tourist office.
There is further information
on all things cultural in the 'Places to Visit' section of Local &
Most of the libraries in County Mayo hold art and thematic exhibitions,
poetry and book readings for children, teenagers and adults alike.
Advertisement of such events is usually in the local press and at the
library itself closer to the event date.
There are often plays held during festivals around many of the towns
in Mayo and of course in the Linenhall Arts Centre, Castlebar. However,
if you are willing to travel a little further afield there are excellent
plays, shows etc. held all year round in the theatres of Galway city.
The three are:
