Dating in Mayo

October 31, 2017 |

If you’re looking for help with dating in Mayo, then INTRO just might be your perfect match to get started. While INTRO Matchmaking is head-quartered in Dublin’s Grafton Street, we proudly boast dating members all across Ireland, including Mayo. We frequently visit Mayo to personally meet prospective dating members and are delighted with the volume of successful matches we have assisted in the Maritime County!


Despite a small decline in the overall population of Mayo (according to Census 2016), the county has a high proportion of single adults (0ver 37%). In fact, almost exactly one-quarter of the 40-49 age group self-reported as single in the recent Census. So, there should be no problem finding a date in Mayo, right?

Actually, Mayo is one of the counties from which INTRO receives a comparably high volume of contact enquiries. Consequently, single people from Mayo is one group we have been able to help a lot in recent years. Dating in Mayo should be easy to do, based on these numbers alone, but the national skepticism and reticence towards online dating and matchmaking persists in Mayo as much, if not more, than everywhere else in Ireland.

Just one brief phone conversation with any of our wonderful matchmakers tends to reassure our prospective members that you are with the dating agency that is both respectful and committed to your dating success, in equal measure.
