Barbara from Ireland

Beautiful views out to Blacksod and Iniskeas, nice mix of soft and hard surface stretch. Was a bit wary about the very large livestock who seemed to think I was encroaching on their territory.

Barry from Dublin

Excellent trail. Particularly nice along the coast. Important to do from the Achill Rovers side towards the Valley House as this is the way the trail is marked. Doing the opposite direction is difficult as it is not signposted. On the coast piece, the trail stays on land, not the beach which can be difficult to climb from.

Margaret from Mayo

Fantastic looped walk, stunning views out across the bay. Very easy to follow trail. Plenty flora and fauna, and history in the area. Very enjoyable way to spend a morning
