Lacken Bay beach is located along the North Mayo coastline, between the towns of Killala and Ballycastle, Iraland. The beach looks out onto the Atlantic and offers a breath-taking view of the North West coast. Lacken is the site of the French landing at Kilcummin Strand in 1798 and the start of General Humbert's march to Ballina.

Lacken is divided in two by a 600 acre strand and a 500 acre marshland. It has two small harbors, one at Rathlacken in Lacken Bay and the second at Kilcummin in Killala Bay.

Lacken enjoys a location in an area steeped in history with many monastic ruins to explore, rich in archaeology with the Céide Fields nearby and abundant in flora, fauna, beautiful beaches and pure fresh air to exhilarate even the weariest traveler.
