We will organise every aspect of your adventure travel, we even move your bags each day to your next accommodation. This is backpacking without the backache.

The Western way trail starts in Oughterard and brings you along the shores of Lough Corrib and through to the Maam valley where your experience of the wild Connemara landscape begins, continuing through the Inagh Valley, to Leenane and onto Drummin and finishing in Westport.

You will hike through areas still used for turfcutting, sheepfarming and pass through a pilgrimage route where the tiny church of St Patrick sits atop a mountain pass called Maumean.

The trail covers parts of the Wild Atlantic Way and its rugged, rocky landscape ending in Westport where live traditional Irish music is available in the pubs every night of the week.

About The Islands options:

You have the option to start your Western Way adventure on Inishmor, the largest of the Aran Islands and perhaps even finish on Inishbofin Island, located off the coast of Connemara.
