Achill Island is an ideal location for the walking enthusiast. At Achill Isle Walks we can cater for all levels of walkers, from gentle walks along the coast to the more demanding day out on Croaghan, Achill’s highest mountain. We look at the flora and fauna and archaeology that is available on each walk. We can provide a handcrafted itinerary of your choice for a number of multi-day walks or just the one walk during your stay on Achill. Allow yourself to unwind in Achill’s unspoilt landscape.

We can also arrange first class accommodation at Achill Isle House if required.
