Connemara Hill Walking Holidays

Optional Extras


Self-guided treks and walksWe have a wealth of information on local walks and locations. All our maps and information are available to you for planning your hill walking expeditions in Connemara. You can email for information to plan your holiday or we can meet you during your stay at Heatherhill.


Local guides are available to guide individuals and groups on all levels of walks. Letterfrack is the centre for training hillwalking guides in Ireland and as such has more than its fair share of trained and experienced guides. We can put you in touch with local guides before your arrival or once you are here. You can also look at our links page for links to local guides web sites.

We can arrange all transport from airport pick-ups to simply dropping you to the start of your walk and collecting you at the finish. Email us with your transport needs so that we can arrange a price if you need full transportation. If you only need transport for occasional drop-offs or pick-ups you can arrange that when you are in Letterfrack. It would be best to give us at least 24 hours notice. Prices will vary depending on your requirements.
