5 Easy Day Trips from Knock

Best for pilgrims: Croagh Patrick No visit to the Lourdes of Ireland is complete without a barefoot trek up Croagh Patrick (if you want to wear hiking boots, we won't tell). The view is fantastic, and the mountain itself is just 63km (an hour and 20 minutes) from Knock town.

Best for nature lovers: Cliffs of Moher The two hours and 20 minutes it takes to drive to Clare's famous cliffs doesn't feel like a slog. Gorgeous rolling hills, spectacular seaside views and historic villages make this a road trip worth savouring. Once you arrive you'll be treated to the incredible sight of the Atlantic breaking against the towering cliffs. This is what car hire from Knock is all about.

Best for families: Westport House It takes just under an hour to drive to this fab pirate-themed adventure park in Westport. There are rides such as log flumes and swinging boats for older kids, and a soft play for mini adventurers too. On sunny days hop in a swan pedalo, or take a train ride around the park. Leave time to visit the spooky dungeons of the house, too.

Best for foodies: Calvey's of Achill The one hour and 35 minute drive to Achill is well worth it just to pop into one of the best seafood restaurants in Ireland, Calvey's of Achill. Order up the seafood platter of Keembay lobster, Keel Island crab claws, Clew Bay oysters and steamed local mussels or go for a rack of their mountain lamb.
