Singles Only Travel & Tours

Walking Tour in the Clare and Connemara Region, Ireland
Event Details Section

The Burren is a limestone escarpment of approx 100 sq miles that has a unique range of flora and a fascinating history. From our base in Ballyvaughan we will be able to explore the best this region has to offer including the Cliffs of Moher

Connemara is a land of desolate bogs and mountains. It is a harsh but inspiring landscape that reveals its history in deserted famine cottages and archaeological sites. Our base is the picture perfect village of Leenane with its wonderful nearby walks and interesting attractions such as Kylemore Abbey
.

Day 1: We will meet at Shannon Airport from where we will transfer the group to the village of Ballyvaughan, our base for next 3 nights. (The journey takes approx 1 hour.)


Day 2: Mullaghmore - (13km, 400m ascent)
Starting at Gortlecka in the Burren National Park , walk on a narrow lane between Turloughs then across limestone pavements with pavement and hazel woodland flora, to climb through limestone crags to the summit of the modest Mullaghmore Mountain , regarded by many as the spiritual heart of the Burren.


Day 3: Black Head - (17 km, 300 m ascent)
You walk in the north western corner of the Burren. You begin walking up an old path onto the limestone pavements. A hazel scrub vegetation threatens to cover the whole of this area. You may spot one of the herds of feral goats who live wild in the area and thrive on the hazel and fulfil an important function in preventing the scrub from enveloping the thin soils of the region. You walk through the pass and then descend to the Gleninagh valley before joining the Burren Way . The walk continues down a lane alongside the Caher River . The final section of the walk follows a green road around Black Head with beautiful views over Galway Bay to the Aran Islands and the distant Connemara Mountains.

 
Day 4: Cliffs of Moher and Kylemore Abbey, Connemara
Transfer to the Cliffs of Moher, where you can enjoy a short walk along the spectacular cliffs.
Transfer by minibus to Connemara where we will visit Kylemore Abbey. The mock Gothic castle was a wedding gift from a wealthy Liverpool businessman to his wife in 1868. Since 1920 it has been the home of the Benedictine nuns who run a girl boarding school at the Abbey. There will be time to visit the Abbey, Church and Victorian garden.

 
Day 5: Killary Harbour - (13km, 190m ascent)
Walk from Bunowen along the shores of Killary Harbour overlooking the whole fjord and Mweelrea Mountain, the highest in Connaught. Cross through an old deserted settlement along old path once used by the community to carry their dead to the cemetery. Descend to the Little Killary and walk around to Rosroe Pier to the Youth Hostel that the philosopher Wittgenstein once stayed in when seeking darkness! Return along the old shoreline path to Bunowen.

 
Day 6: The Aran Islands - (11km, 310m ascent)
At 9.00 am drive south through Connemara to Rossaveal on the south coast. From Rossaveal take the ferry (cost €20) out to Inishmore, the largest of the Aran Islands (30 mins). The cliff path leads to Dun Aengus, a 3000 year old stone ring fort built right up to the 100 metre cliff edge. The fort is one of the finest Iron Age ring forts in Europe with two outer walls in addition to the central cashel. After exploring the fort you will take a minibus back to Cill Ronain, where you will have some time before catching the boat back to Rossaveal, then on to Leenane by minibus.

Day 7: Mam Eán - (12 km, 300 m ascent)
Walk from the Mám valley and climb gradually up to the pass. At the summit of the path there is a statue of St.Patrick and several “stations” around which pilgrims say their prayers. A cleft in the rock is said to have been used by St. Patrick as a shelter. From the pass we continue down to the Inagh Valley where we follow the Western Way along a quiet lake to Lough Inagh.

Day 8: Journey home/set transfer to Shannon Airport for 12.00 noon. (approx 2,5 hours)
