Western Ocean Walking Weekend

Western Ocean Walking Weekend

This fabulous autumn walking break in northwest Mayo takes place over the last weekend of September, in a land dominated by the North Atlantic.

The barony of Erris occupies this far corner of Mayo – a spectacular landscape of Atlantic blanket bog, high sea cliffs, low-lying peninsulas and seemingly never-ending beaches.

Next Dates :  22 – 25 September 2022

Location : The Mullet Peninsula occupies the far NW corner of Mayo – a spectacular landscape dominated by the wild North Atlantic, boasting high sea cliffs, low-lying field systems, seemingly never-ending beaches and stunning offshore islands.

Level : Easy to moderate.

Duration : Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon (3 nights; 2.5 days walking)

Description :

Day One : We rendezvous for dinner in Belmullet (Béal an Mhuirthead), followed by drive to our excellent B&B out on The Mullet Peninsula itself and orientation.

Day Two : The truly wonderful cliff-top walk at An Ceathrú Thaidhg, in the far corner of NW Mayo. We follow that with a second, shorter stroll on Erris Head’s beautiful cliff-top walk.

Day Three : Out on the wonderful, evocative Iniskea Islands, deserted since the 1930s and now home to seabirds and wildlife (subject to weather).

Day Four : Walking The Mullet peninsula, with its fabulous beaches and views to take the breath away. Visits along the way to a tiny ruined medieval church in a stunning location and a holy well by the sea.

For this walking weekend, we stay in a lovely B&B along the Wild Atlantic Way, where we enjoy 3 B&B nights.

Don’t worry – there will be trips to the pub!
