Availibility: Tours available each Monday and Wednesday numbers permitting from June until September.
Climb one of Achill’s highest Mountain and take in fantastic views of the surrounding area. Our walk starts by walking through Achill famous Deserted Village which featured so highly in the resent RTE documentary, The Hunger: The Story of the Irish Famine, narrated by Liam Neeson.
Learn how and why this thriving village was deserted. Then it’s on to the mountain itself. We climb slowly up stopping regularly to take in the changing views laid out before us. Listen to the many stories of the guide about the locality, flora and fauna.
At the summit we have a well earned rest and maybe have a cup of tea. We have a great view from the summit, looking south as far as the 12 Bens and north to Ben Bulbin and east to the Nephins and west we see the end of Achill and the broad Atlantic beyond. We then retrace our steps to the Deserted Village.
