Welcome to Belmullet Coast Guard Station Pods - this site is in a stunning location on Claggan Island in north County Mayo. The top corner of Ireland, this beautiful location has sea cliffs that plunge in to crashing waves and headlands jutting out to the Atlantic all while sitting beside white sandy beaches: it is is definitely a place of extremes.
The views across the bay towards Belmullet are stunning as are the magnificent sunrises. The pods are set in the heart of a working farm and animals can be seen during the summer months grazing in the fields around the station.
Our kitchen area and showers are located in a converted barn only 70m from the pods. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, gas hob, fridge with ice box, toaster, electric kettle and a solid fuel stove for extra comfort. Both showers are based on an ensuite design, they are spacious, bright with powerful pumped showers and a shaving point in the men's unit. There is also a washing machine and drier available for a small extra charge.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
