Rejuvenate yourself with this New Year walking weekend in Westport.
Event Dates :
Friday 3rd – Sunday 5th of January 2014
Event Location :
Westport, Co. Mayo
Event Details :
This New Year walking weekend, based in lovely Westport, will be filled with a series of short to medium length walks around the hills, forests, bogs and coast of west Mayo. The weekend will be about shaking loose the cobwebs from the end of year festivities and getting out and about again.
Walks will be low level – no high hillwalks on this mid-winter weekend! We will stay in a nice, cosy B&B, with hot dinner included each evening (Fri and Sat).
Friday, January 3, 2014 :
Arrive in Westport Friday evening. Why not take the train ? No need to bring the car to Mayo. Jump on a train from Hueston at 12.45, relax and arrive in Westport at 15.55.
We will enjoy a nice evening stroll of 2 hours under cover of dark, before heading in to town. I’ll be encouraging you to sample one of our local West Mayo Brewery craft beers.
Saturday, January 4, 2014 :
We will walk below Mayo’s most famous mountain, Croagh Patrick and out along the beach. There will be two separate walks, with a hot lunch in between. We will not be tackling the summit of The Reek, just rambling up to its shoulder and down the other side.
Sunday, January 5, 2014 :
An invigorating dawn walk will be followed by a midday stroll through a lovely forest, before departure on the 15.45 train that gets in to Dublin at 19.10.
Get in touch if you would like to join our small group on this relaxed, slow-paced guided walking weekend. Kick off your New Year with some activity out in the crisp, fresh West of Ireland winter.
