Set the day aside, pack a picnic and get ready to explore the magnificent Connemara mountains on foot. Enjoy the surreal natural beauty of the area, stopping to take in the awe-inspiring views (and a photo or two). Choose to be fully guided or step-up the adventure by learning the art of navigation using a map and compass. Choose to hike the Twelve Bens, the Maam Turks or the Mweelrea mountains in Connemara, County Galway. All are dominant topographical features in Ireland with some of the most stunning views in the country and a ‘must do’ hill walking when visiting the area.
