Walking in Mulranny

The Mulranny area offers a range of treks, loops and walks. We are surrounded by some of the best walks in Ireland including the Burrishoole Loop series of walks which is one of the most comprehensive networks of Fáilte Ireland approved walks anywhere in the country, which includes the Letterkeen and Lettermaghera Loop walks.
West Mayo is one of Ireland’s most exhilarating, diverse and beautiful walking destinations. It offers not only wild mountain scenery but also dramatic coastal walks and seascapes. The vast Nephin Mountain Range and iconic seascape of Clew Bay, with its drowned drumlin islands, provide spectacular view and ever changing hues.  Mayo is a county of great geographical contrasts, offering walkers a quality of terrain that few places can compete with.
The village of Mulranny lies on an isthmus, a convergence of land and sea, a crossroads of marine and terrestrial habitats.  Such is the quality of environment here that a trio of European conservation areas and Ireland’s largest National Park converge on Mulranny.
Our Local Guides are happy to walk and talk with you and you will discover spectacular landscapes and the amazing ecosystems that created them.  Why not learn about the events and people that shaped the history of west Mayo.

Mulranny Loop or Lookout Hill as it is sometimes known is “one of the most beautiful short walks in this island” according to Christopher Somerville of the Irish Independent. The jewel in the crown must be The Great Western Greenway, spanning 42km from Achill Island to Westport. The longest off road cycling and walking trail in Ireland, is suitable for all ages and levels of fitness and experience.

The Greenway traverses Ireland’s Atlantic coast between Westport town and Achill Island and visits the picturesque villages of Newport and Mulranny (Mallaranny). It passes by some of the West of Ireland’s most dramatic mountains and offers magnificent views of Clew Bay and its many islands. Making a stunning backdrop to any walking experience.
