While formerly known as Ballyovey, the contemporary name, Partry, derives from the word "Partraige", which is the name of the tribe that lived in the area in ancient times.

In 2004, Partry Athletic Football Club was formed by members of the local community. It proceeded to win Division 2 of the Mayo league the season after its formation. When Michael Cronin resigned as manager after four years in charge, the Donnolly brothers took over in 2008. Since 2008, Partry Athletic has started running underage football teams ranging from Under 8 to Under 16 for boys and girls.

A priest-hunter named Seán na Sagart was killed in Partry.
