West Coast Walks


West Coast Walks
Western Ireland Ireland

Enjoy hiking along the wide, sweeping expanses of Ireland’s beaches, her lonely mountain trails, and her windswept hills.  Participants will be awed by the natural beauty, ancient architecture and charming towns along the way. West Coast Walks features gems of Connemara including mountains, preserved bog lands, national parks, ancient abbeys and forts, and almost 5,000 years of history.

Starting out in Clifden, this hike takes us through a varying landscape of lakes, green rolling hills, tidal islands, awesome cliffs, great labyrinths of limestone, patchwork fields, quiet beaches, and Ireland’s only fjord! Visit places of enchanting history like the Kylemore Abbey, originally built as a romantic gift, the Killary Fjord, intertwined with the 19th century famine relief effort and home to gregarious dolphins, or the fort of Dún Aonghasa, thought to date back to the Iron Age. Discover the strange geological patterns of the Burren region and its eroded limestone floors covering dozens of megalithic tombs and Celtic crosses.

Come and join our fully escorted West Coast Walk! Each day we are assisted by a minivan which allows us to cover more territory. This walk is suitable for participants of all ages. If discovering Ireland’s natural beauty (including sand dunes, forests, rugged hills, heather covered moors, quiet river valleys, endless beaches, and ancient trails) on foot appeals to you, then West Coast Walks is what you have been waiting for!
