Walking in the Wilds of Connemara and Mweelrea.
Connemara is a region in Galway in the west of Ireland. It reaches out to the Atlantic Ocean with its Jagged coastline of cliffs and beaches; it also hosts Ireland’s only Fjord. There are two main mountain ranges in this region the 12 Bens and the Maumturks. Both ranges offer incredible walks and scenery that can be admired even from your car as you pass through them.

One of the great benefits of being a member of Hilltoptreks walking club, are the numerous organized hiking weekends away, both in Ireland and abroad.
One weekend that stands out for me, was our trip to Sligo for the 2019 June bank holiday weekend.
On a sunny bank holiday Saturday, we all made our way to Sligo – some drove themselves, while others opted to avail of the bus provided by Hilltoptreks – and met up in the Glasshouse Hotel. Here we were met by our guide for the weekend, Noel. Noel gave us a brief rundown of our itinerary for the days ahead, along with a little bit of history of the area we were in.

I started walking with HilltopTreks over ten years ago, and over the years have enjoyed many walks both here in Ireland and in recent years in Europe.
While Wicklow is usually where we conduct most of our walks, we have over the years spent pleasant week-ends away walking in the Comeraghs, Galtees, Slievenamon, Donard, Mournes, Connemara, Ben Bulbin to name just some. In recent years we have travelled to the Dolomites in Northern Italy, Bratislavia in Romania and a group of us also hill walked in Southern Spain near Marbella.
