Come and enjoy the wild and mysterious Mayo landscape and get your walking boots on and join us on an adventure through rural County Mayo. This trail is set in a landscape that is truly inspiring, hosting a wealth of heritage that would appeal to any walker. Walkers can discover boreens and ancient pathways as the trail makes its way through a number of picturesque villages towards its destination on the shores of Clew Bay.
See below exciting footage from last year’s Heritage Trail, by Tough Soles, Ellie and Carl, who are walking 4,000km+ along all the National Waymarked Trails of Ireland.

As this is generally a moderate walk, a reasonable level of fitness is required. Proper walking boots and waterproof rain-gear is essential. Day two would be regarded as being the most difficult. Refreshments are provided at the start, middle and finish of each day.
Note: Teenagers under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. No Dogs Allowed on the Croagh Patrick Heritage Trail.
