Outdoor & Adventure
in the West of Ireland
The rugged scenery, clear waters and winds sweeping in off the Atlantic make
the West of Ireland perfect for lovers of the outdoors and adventure of all
kinds and a touch of adrenaline is the perfect accompaniment to the breathtaking
views. Whether you are a fair weather adventurer just hoping for a little fresh
air, or a dedicated adrenaline junkie in search of your next thrill, you’ll have
a choice of outdoor activities on your doorstep.
13
One of the best ways to appreciate the incredible scenery is to get out there and be a
part of it. Coillte, Ireland's leading forestry company, has a wide range of recreation
sites across the country, 16 of which are in the Ireland’s West region. Here you can
access miles of walking, cycling, hiking, multi-access, and long distance trails, fish,
picnic, watch wildlife, launch your canoe on the rivers, visit megalithic sites or just sit
and enjoy the outdoors. The choice is yours and for further information you can visit
www.coillteoutdoors.ie

Boating
Island scattered waters, calm bays and dramatic coastline make the West coast ideal
for sailing, sea kayaking and boat trips with visitor moorings, tuition and equipment
rental available in several locations. Inland, the River Shannon and its lakes are another
perfect location of more leisurely boating and watersports.
25
Scuba Diving
Water clarity and an abundance or sealife attracts divers from all over to this area. The
good visibility, varied dive sites and frequent sightings of dolphins and seals makes this
a remarkably rewarding place to dive. The main dive locations are located around the
offshore islands of Inishbofin, Inishturk and Clare Island and include everything from
easier beginners dives to more advanced and exciting wreck diving.

Surfing
The West coast experiences the unharnessed power of the Atlantic winds and is an
excellent surfing location. The jagged coastline ensures a great variety of beaches, so
you’re sure to find a good swell on one of them whatever the wind direction. In Mayo,
Keel on Achill Island and Carrowniskey and Carrowmore near Louisburgh are good spots
to try. The best waves are in April and May and again in September and October, but
even at the busiest times you’ll rarely find the surfing beaches too crowded.
Walking & Cycling
We’re not short of experienced and entertaining walking guides offering a wide range
of services for all levels of fitness from low level walks to hill walking, day trips to more
extended walking and cycling holiday packages. If you’re more interested in going it
alone then take advantage of the recent addition of a wide variety of new looped walks
or the long distance way marked ways. Alternatively the new series of half-day and fullday signposted cycle routes around our three cycle hubs of Achill Island, Clifden and
Westport are definitely worth further investigation.

Windsurfing
Again the consistent winds make windsurfing a popular pursuit. Most adventure and
activity centres offer tuition for the complete beginner which should get you up and
running in within 60 minutes. For the more advanced there is tuition on free styling and
blasting.
29
Outdoor Festivals & Events
Whatever your outdoor activity of choice we have a festival or event to suit from the
more relaxed walking festivals in the tranquil countryside to the adrenaline charged Rat
Race adventure sports race in the heart of Galway City. Bring the family along and
whether they’re participating or just watching from the sidelines, a great day out will
be had by all!
