Founded in the 14C, Ballina is known for its wealth of old architecture, dating almost as far back as the town itself.

Ballina is a town in north County Mayo, Ireland. It lies at the mouth of the River Moy near Killala Bay, in the Moy valley. The town has some notable architecture, including the 15th-century Moyne Abbey and St Muredach's Cathedral. Ballina has a very lively entertainment scene and a variety of restaurants serving Irish, European and Asian cuisine. The town also hosts the annual Fesant Fest music festival. The Ballina Salmon Festival is held annually in July in the town. The festival includes Heritage Day, where most of the centre of the town is closed to traffic and the streets fill with arts and craft stalls and demonstrations of transport from days gone by.
