Luxury Walking Weekend in Connemara

Walking weekend in ConnemaraConnemara sits in the very west of Ireland in County Galway and has some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. The coastline weaves in and out along the Wild Atlantic Way, with attractive small fishing villages such as Roundstone, Clifden and Leenaun. The landscape is exceptionally beautiful, with many freshwater lakes surrounded by steep mountains including The Maumturks, and the Twelve Bens, the two most prominent mountain ranges in the area. Connemara National Park covers 2,000 hectares of scenic mountains, bogs and woodlands and was established in 1980.

About The Walks on our Luxury Walking Weekend in Connemara:

The Western Way- approx. 10Km with very little incline

Lough Corrib to Maum -We will be shortening this walk by driving out of Oughterard to Lough Corrib Shoreline. The trail travels along the Lough Corrib shoreline for approx. 5.5 kilometres north west toward Maum. A few kilometres beyond Doon Rock the trail enters a forestry plantation and for the first time the sensation of remoteness will be experienced. The R336 brings the hiker over the pass and down toward Maum.

Famine Walk – Killary Fjord – approx. 8Km incline of approx. 80m – 100m.

Starting from Rosroe Pier. The trail sits on the south side of the Killary Fjord in Connemara is one of Ireland’s most scenic and historic flat coastal walks. Also known as Killary harbour coastal walk or the “famine walk” as much of the road on which the trail takes was built as relief work during the Irish famine 1845-52.

The trail is a linear coastal walk along the south side of Killary Fjord, Ireland’s only true Fjord.
