Mulranny—sometimes spelled as 'Malaranny', 'Mullaranny', 'Mullranny' or 'Mulranny'— is a seaside village on the isthmus between Clew Bay and Blacksod Bay in County Mayo, Ireland. Mulranny is the home of colourful giant fuchsias and exotic plants. This plant life is celebrated each summer during the Mulranny Mediterranean Heather Festival. Mulranny has been cited as a possible source of the ancient Gallowglass MacNevin family, who originally emigrated to Scotland in the mid 10th Century. The Nevin Coat of Arms has a Fern as a main symbol.

Mulranny, nestled at the foot of The Nephin Mountain Range, offers long sandy blue flag beaches and a relatively mild climate. Mulranny also plays host to a breathtaking coastal lagoon. The Corraun Peninsula, which contains three mountain peaks, is situated across Clew Bay.

In 2011, Mulranny was a winner of the EDEN (European Destination of Excellence) award.
