Mulranny (Irish: An Mhala Raithní, meaning 'the hill-brow of the ferns')—sometimes spelled as 'Mallaranny', 'Mulrany', 'Malaranny', 'Mullaranny', 'Mullranny' or 'Mulranny'—is a seaside village on the isthmus between Clew Bay and Blacksod Bay in County Mayo, Ireland. Mulranny, located at the foot of the Nephin Mountain Range, has a number of blue flag beaches and a coastal lagoon. The Corraun Peninsula, which contains three mountain peaks, is situated across Clew Bay.
Mulranny is located on the N59 national secondary road. Bus routes serving the area include Bus Éireann route 450 (Dooagh-Westport-Louisburgh) and Local Link route 978 (Castlebar-Belmullet).
Mulranny lies on the 42 km Great Western Greenway, which runs between Westport and Achill. In 2011, it was the winner of a 'European Destinations of Excellence' award.
A type of heather, Erica erigena, which is unique to the area, is celebrated during the annual summer "Mulranny Mediterranean Heather Festival".
