Oscar Wilde was accurate as always when he described the West of Ireland’s ‘savage beauty’. Rugged from the force of the Atlantic, with stunning mountain and cliffs, walking in the coastal regions of Mayo & Connemara reveals secret beaches, the ruins of pre – famine settlements, holy wells, silent valleys and ancient pilgrim and smuggler’s paths.
Westport is an ideal location to start this self guided walking holiday. It one of Ireland’s few 19th century planned towns with history going back to the mid 18th century when the Browne family employed the well know architect James Wyatt. The tree lined streets that run along the Mall river and the lovely shop fronts make it a very pleasant town to visit and stayover.
Leenane village is situated at the head of Ireland’s only fjord and is your location for the next 2 nights.
Finishing up in the Inagh Valley, located in the centre of Connemara in your very lovely Lodge overlooking a lake with the 12 Bens mountain range as a backdrop.CONTACT US
