West of Ireland Walking Tours Connemara

DAY 1: Arrival in Oughterard

From your point of arrival, use the public transport information we provide to make the journey to Oughterard.

DAY 2: Oughterard (Glann Church) - Maam Valley

17km • 4 - 6 hours • (↑) 120m

A long, relatively flat, walk follows quiet country roads out of Oughterard alongside the shores of Lough Corrib - an internationally renowned fishing destination. After passing the lake, you cross some scenic bogland typical of the local area before finishing your walk in the Maamturk Mountains.

DAY 3: Maam Valley - Lough Inagh

15km • 4 - 6 hours • (↑) 310m

Those leg muscles will be put to the test this morning as you climb upwards to Máméan Pass (the pass of the birds). At the top of the pass, there is a wonderful surprise. (You will have to visit to find out!)

DAY 4: Lough Inagh to Leenane

15km • 4 - 6 hours • (↑) 100m

A stunning walk through the epic boglands of Connemara in a valley between the Twelve Bens to your left and the Maamturks on your right. The trail finishes along a beautiful old track overlooking Ireland's only fjord.
