Bekan or Becan (Irish: Béacán) is a village in County Mayo, Ireland. Because of the almost entirely rural population, it is traditionally a farming community. The village is off the R323 road between Knock and Ballyhaunis. The local school is St. Joseph's National School.
The Connacht Gaelic Athletic Association Centre of Excellence was built outside the village in December 2012.
Eastern Gaels is the local Gaelic Football club, which represents both Bekan and Brickeens. The Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence is the major sporting facility in the area. The centre is just outside the village. The centre has a 3G pitch, five floodlit Gaelic games pitches, and a gymnasium.
Bekan railway station opened on 1 January 1909 and closed on 17 June 1963.
