Connemara Mountain Walking Festival

Embark on an enchanting journey with a warm Céad míle fáilte in Leenane, nestled on the shores of the majestic Killary Fjord, during the Connemara Mountain Walking Festival.

Our primary objective is to provide you with an immersive experience, allowing you to discover the treasures of this vibrant community while basking in the breathtaking scenery, rich nature, captivating history, and fascinating geology along the Wild Atlantic Way. Explore the untamed landscapes of Connemara, including Mweelrea, the 12 Bens, and other local mountains.

Though the festival aligns with the busy spring season for the local farm families, whose lands we traverse, many generously find time to join us on the walks, contributing to a mutually rewarding experience. We encourage walkers to connect and share in the camaraderie, as some of the most unforgettable moments in the Connemara mountains are those shared with others.

For those unfamiliar with the Irish language, a delightful challenge awaits as you attempt to pronounce the names of the mountains. Fear not, as a crash course will be provided before we embark on our adventure!

Your journey is made seamless with inclusive transportation to and from the walks, accompanied by a team of fully qualified mountain guides—several from local mountain rescue groups. The festival is comprehensively insured, and your experience is enriched with provided maps, a small souvenir, and a comforting conclusion featuring tea and scones. Don't miss the Sunday Ceilidh, adding a delightful touch to your Connemara adventure.
