Sightings of Portuguese Man O’War jellyfish on Mayo’s beaches and bathing waters

Mayo County Council’s Environment Section advises the public regarding sightings of Portuguese Man O’War jellyfish on Mayo’s beaches and bathing waters.

The Portuguese Man O’War jellyfish has been spotted at some beaches in Mayo and along the west coast of Ireland in recent days. The jellyfish can inflict severe stings, therefore contact should be avoided. 

Warning Notices alerting the public to avoid contact with these jellyfish have been placed at Keel and Keem Beach, in Achill and at Cross Beach in Belmullet.

There have been further reports of sightings at Dooega in Achill, Port mór, Annagh and the two connecting beaches heading round towards Carne Golf Club in Belmullet.  There is a possibility that they may present at other beaches along Mayo’s coastline. 

The public are advised that the jellyfish can be present on the shore and in the water.
