The Lure of Cong

Cong guided walking weekend, hiking in Mayo

Lough Corrib at Cong

Cong, at the very southern tip of County Mayo, is one of Ireland’s prettiest villages. It is reminiscent of L’Isle sur la Sorgue in southern France, in that it is criss-crossed by numerous channels of the same river, with deep pools dotted all around. Cong even enjoys the added attraction of beautiful woodlands.

Cong is a wonderful place for walking, with good quality off-road trails that skirt along the edges of the great western lakes of Loughs Corrib and Mask. The trails meander through lovely woodland, a mix of native broadleaves and the typical conifers of the boggy West of Ireland.

Two pubs in Cong are excellent – Danagher’s at the bottom of the village and Lydon’s at the top. Both are home to really good trad music sessions. Go there.

As of this time, I have four places still available on my guided walking weekend in Cong at the end of April. See here for details.
