Headford is a popular angling centre for the eastern shore of Lough Corrib, and Greenfields, 6.5 km west of the town, is its boating harbour. It is 2 km south of the Black River which is the county boundary with Mayo and noted also for its trout angling.
It is also the centre of an area richly endowed with archaeological monuments including prehistoric burial cairns, Iron Age stone enclosures, early Norman and later castles, and many monastic sites. These include Ross Errilly Friary, founded in 1351, which is a well preserved monastic ruin.
Headford appeared in the Oscar-winning film “The Quiet Man” starring John Wayne.
