Hiking - Connemara Western Way
Galaway & Mayo Ireland

The Western Way is a relatively short walking route of 101 km (63 miles) from Oughterard in County Galway to Westport in County Mayo. This part of western Ireland contains Ireland’s finest scenery in unspoilt and quiet countryside. The route is part of the longer Western Way walking route that continues from Westport to Ballina, Co. Mayo.

Connemara is a wild place, with some of the finest scenery Ireland has to offer. Early settlements were mainly on the coast; the interior deemed too infertile and wet for any useful occupation. The area suffered huge population loss in the mid 19th century but through the guidance of the Irish Land Commission, land leases were offered to tenant farmers, fishing was structured and the area was slowly rejuvenated.

The total walk is 77km. Approximately 36% of the route is on minor roads.
