Overview

Connemara is one of Ireland’s best locations for hillwalking and should be high on everyone’s staycation bucket list! You will get to meet a group of like-minded adventurers and have some fun enjoying the challenge of the hills and picking up some invaluable tips from our expert guides. We will base ourselves in Westport and stay in the luxurious 4-star Westport Plaza Hotel or similar, the perfect place to rest your bones after each day on the hills.

Our plan is to take in the best hikes available to us in both Galway and Mayo such as Mweelrea, Benbaun, Croagh Patrick and Devils Mother. If the weather is less favourable we have the option of doing a low-level walk in Cong or on the Western Way.

Each day our guided hikes will be lead by one of our experienced expedition leaders. They will teach you the basics of app-based navigation, show you how to read a weather forecast and offer equipment advice to cover both Irish and International expeditions.

Based on the weather forecast we will make a plan each evening for the following day. Our guide will pick the best of the 5 days to climb to Connaught’s highest peak, Mweelrea.

* In order to abide by social distancing rules you will need to drive yourself from the hotel to the trailheads each day.

** Please note, if you are signing up as a solo-traveler you must book a single supplement. Due to the ongoing restrictions regarding Covid-19, we must be able to facilitate social distancing between households wherever possible.
