Mountain Climbing and Hill Walking
All the mountains South and West of Westport provide wonderful climbing and magnificent views of Clew Bay and the Connemara mountains.
We have walks to suit all levels and experience; you can climb to the summit of Mweelrea, walk around gorgeous Doo Lough valley or take in some peaks in the Sheaffry Mountains. Or you can stick to lowlands; walk along Killary Fjord and along the magnificent coastline. The only difficulty is choosing! You can be secure in the knowledge that your guide is a competent and qualified leader with 30 years mountain climbing experience.
