Westport has something for all levels of walker. Take a leisurely stroll along the old railway line or complete the demanding Western Way, hiking across the magnificent
Connemara mountains and along the shores of Lough Corrib, passing Leenane village before reaching Westport. Walking around the area, whether it's in the hills or on the roads or the marked paths on one of the 5 marked walks in and around Westport is a great pleasure.
Take in native wildlife on forest walks such as Tourmakeady Forest Trail or Nephin Beg Forest, or travel Tochar Phadraig - the ancient pilgrim path from Ballintubber Abbey through Aughagower to Croagh Patrick.
