We have many developed links in the community to give our students access to facilities such as playing pitches and indoor courts for all team sports, all within easy reach of the campus and residences. The newly opened Leisure Complex at Lough Lannagh, with its eight-lane pool and state of the art facilities, is only five minutes walk from college and is situated beside the Castlebar Tennis club, with its array of indoor courts in its domed facility, and Castlebar Boxing Club. These facilities are all based on the shores of Lough Lannagh which through our link with Castlebar Urban Adventure Hub allows access to Kayaking, Dragon Boating, Stand up Paddling and Orienteering among other activities. The Mayo Campus is recognised as one of the leading institutes in the country for Outdoor Adventure activities, (The Surf club have just completed a three in a row of National titles), and the geographical location allows access to the best beaches, rivers and mountains.
