Downpatrick Head Ceann Dhún Pádraig

Dún Briste is one of the highlights of the rocky, rugged Atlantic coast of Northern Mayo. Reaching 50 meters up into the sky, the rock column can be seen from a far distance and is one of the landmarks of the Wild Atlantic Way. Downpatrick Head was named after Irelands patron St. Patrick, who founded a church on the narrow land tongue.


Downpatrick Head is a signature point of the Wild Atlantic Way and is located 6 kilometres north of Ballycastle.
