Walking, hiking & climbing

If your passion is walking, climbing or just generally 'rambling', then this is the perfect destination for you! A Loop Walk passes the house, numerous other very interesting walks to discover are in and around Louisburgh.

  • Croagh Patrick - The shortest and most well-known route up 'The Reek' starts from the large carpark in Murrisk. However, if you want a much quieter and more enjoyable route its infinitely better to come along the ridge from Ben Goram to the west!
  • Mweelrea - is the highest mountain in Connaught (814m), and a short distance to the south of the cottage. It presents magnificent scenery from it's summit, but is a mountain which must always be treated with respect. In poor visibility good navigational skills are essential. There are two major ascents, one from Doolough in the east, the other one from the west starts at Dadreen a few kms south of the cottage.


The best way to discover our landscape! Bicycles can be hired in Louisburgh and are safely stored in the shed beside the cottage.
