You won’t find more spectacular, yet apparently undiscovered loop walks in all of Ireland than the Carrowteige Loop Walks, in the townland of Kilgalligan, North Mayo.
With its profusion of precipitous cliffs, crags, caves, chasms and islands, breathtaking clifftop views over the stunning Broadhaven Bay, dizzying heights to scale, and a bird’s eye view of the Stags of Broadhaven, this area will leave you awestruck with its natural, rugged beauty.
Feel the wind in your hair and the sea air on your skin, and feel alive in Carrowteige, one of the unpolished jewels in the Mayo tourism crown.
The Carrowteige walks
There are four walks in total, randing in difficult from easy to strenuous. Green arrows mark the shortest route – but while you’re there, why not make a day of it?
All four routes start at Carrowteigue Village.
