Our walking holiday on the West Coast of Ireland starts in the rural village of Leenane, before moving on to the colourful Clifden. We have included day-walks in the Maumturk Mountains and on the shores of the fjord-like Killary Harbour, where we may see dolphins and seals. We explore the rugged terrain on foot enjoying the splendid views of the coast as we ascend the mountains (max 667m) and visit remote churches and pilgrims rests on the way. In the evenings we meet friendly local people over a cold glass of Guinness and enjoy the ‘Craic'. With its golden sand beaches, mountains and constant changing light, this is a walking holiday to savour.
Is this holiday for you?
The walks are between 3-6 hrs long depending on conditions and weather. You should be physically fit enough to be able to walk these hours on terrain which can be rocky and wet underfoot. Most walks are on good footpaths, but some can be over rough and boggy terrain. The longer days with more ascent are interspersed with easier flatter walks. Each night we are in B&B/guesthouse accommodation with en-suite facilities.
