Warnings, Disclaimers and other Important Information

Walk Connemara offers guided walks, trekking, hillwalking, hikes and walking tours in Connemara, Co Galway, Co Mayo and  along the route of the Wild Atlantic Way in the West of Ireland. These are provided by Paul Phelan, a qualified mountain leader and experienced local walking guide and author of “Connemara and Mayo - a Walking Guide” published by the Collins Press in 2011. 

Covid-19 precautions

Due to the difficulty of maintaining social distancing in groups of unconnected people, we will not be organising any Scheduled Walks until further notice.

Before starting a hike, we will ask participants to confirm that, in the last 14 days they have not: travelled outside of Ireland, had any of the symptoms of Covid-19 or been in contact with anyone who has Covid-19. 

We are asking all participants to bring a face mask and hand sanitiser in case they are needed.

Private Customised Walks

Private customised walks and hikes from Walk Connemara

We offer exclusive private guiding for groups (large or small) on customised full-day, half-day or multi-day walks, hikes and tours. The guiding can be walking only, or can include transport (cars, coach, bus, ferries) in Connemara, Mayo and along the West Coast of Ireland. Private guiding ensures that your group gets exactly what you want and will not be joined by anybody else: 

  • A full-day is currently €250 for up to 8 hours, in the area around Clifden  (e.g. 12 Bens). Longer hikes, large groups and hikes involving travel will cost more. 
  • The cost for a half-day hike starts at €160 (for shorter walks near Clifden, e.g. Omey, Connemara National Park) while longer walks, or those further from Clifden will cost up to €200 (e.g. Cong, Maumahoige), again depending on the location, numbers and transport. 
Let us know what you have in mind and we will help you design your special experience. We can arrange walks around various themes or features e.g. archeology, history, heritage, geology, birds, bogs, caves, mountain passes, megalithic tombs, holy wells.

We accept payments through PayPal (you can use either a credit card or your own PayPal account).
