Connemara is a walker’s paradise. Coastal walks include beaches, dunes, rocky shores, a fjord, cliffs and tidal islands. The islands of Inishbofin, Inishturk and Clare Island offer outstanding walking and interaction with the small resident communities. Easy Connemara hill walking ranges from the gentle bog slopes of Cnoc Mordain to small rocky peaks e.g. Errisbeg, Cashel or the Diamond trail in the Connemara National Park. Connemara also offers challenging rugged mountain hikes such as the Twelve Bens and the Maumturks, while Mweelrea and the Sheefreys are nearby in Mayo.
