Knock, Republic Of Ireland
Right in the heart of County Mayo
Knock is beautiful – if surprisingly compact - and has enjoyed worldwide fame since 1879 as one of Europe’s premier religious shrines. With a population of just 700, it plays host to an estimated 1.5 million pilgrims every year who flock to see its magnificent shrine to the Virgin Mary. Beyond the small town there’s a stunning hinterland to explore, full of quaint villages, atmospheric pubs and an unspoilt rural way of life.
