Connemara March Guided Walking Breaks at Clifden Station House Hotel

Escape from the pace of everyday living this March at Clifden Station House Hotel with this special offer. Check in on either Monday the 13th or Monday the 27th of March for 4 Nights Dinner, Bed & Breakfast in the Clifden Station House Hotel, with guided walks of some of Connemara’s most beautiful areas.

On Tuesday, traverse a section of the stunning Inagh Valley & Mamean, on a pilgrimage walk following in the footsteps of St Patrick, where he is said to have given Connemara his blessing on his way to Croagh Patrick. This 7km looped walk offers panoramic views of the 12 Bens and Lough Inagh, with an easy to moderate difficulty. The walk takes about 2 and a half hours in total.

On Wednesday, depart from Cleggan Pier and take the ferry to the island of Inishbofin. This island has been occupied continuously since the Bronze Age. In 668, Saint Colmán founded a monastery on Inishbofin, which survived until the 10th century. It is also home to the ruins of Cromwell’s barracks, constructed in 1652 at the entrance to the harbour entrance. Inishbofin is also home to Dún Gráinne, the remains of a fort used by the legendary Grace O’Malley, Ireland’s pirate queen, as well as the ruins of a Celtic fort dating to 1000 B.C. The Westquarter loop takes in some of the most stunning Atlantic Coast scenery in Connemara offering views of the Island’s blow holes and sea arch, sea stags where the Island seal colony can be seen, the Dún More Cliffs and Iron Age promontory fort ruins, picturesque Trá Gheal beach and famine road. It is an 8km Easy to Moderate Looped Walk, taking approximately 3.5hrs.

Thursdays’ walk is Tully Mountain. This is a very rewarding hill walk with stunningly beautiful views, featuring quartzite and bright quartz rocks, mountain bog, juniper plants, sea birds and spectacular coastal scenery. It is an 8km Moderate Looped Walk (350m elevation climb). 3.5hrs.

Clifden Station House Hotel’s beautifully appointed and newly refurbished bedrooms are comfortable and stylish and offer guests all that one would expect and sometimes more.
