Connemara and Mayo form an area known for its stunning scenery with high hills meeting white sandy beaches at the edge of the Atlantic and this guidebook describes some of the region's best and most spectacular walks. A wide variety of walks and terrains are covered: easy two-hour walks on surfaced paths; two to three-hour flat island and coastal walks; two to four-hour gentle hill and mountain hikes; four to seven-hour strenuous hill walks, some of which can be combined to form serious mountain challenges. Detailed instructions are provided along with interesting information regarding archaeology, history, landscape, flora and wildlife. Maps are included for each walk while photographs illustrate the routes and to give a sense of the beautiful scenery. Start and finish points are identified (with grid references), along with suggestions as to nearby items of interest or refreshment options. Alternative routes and variations on walks are provided along with safety warnings and escape routes where appropriate.
