It is a well-known fact that the west of Ireland is the most stunning and welcoming of the island, and over time it has become a favourite holiday destination for all who want to experience the magic of the Emerald Isle.
While there are plenty of walking trails that will let you discover this magnificent region of Ireland, don’t be afraid to go off the beaten track and avoid following the busiest and most well-known trails.
This is our specialty: we want to help you discover “our” west of Ireland, away from the typical rat-tracks and with more focus on meeting people and visiting well-preserved sites such as Ballycroy National Park for example, or the Nephin Beg mountain range; nobody knows them quite like we do !
Another one of our principles is not to impose any ready-made walking schedule on our visitors, but give them the possibility of creating their own custom trip.
So how do we do this? By letting you choose from the hikes and trails that we have mapped out those that best correspond to your centres of interest or based on the distances you would like to cover each day.
Here is a quick look at some of the hikes and walks we have on offer this year, all of which are with a walking guide who speaks French and English and will certainly share his love of the west of Ireland with his followers!
We think that three to six days at Rock House is an appropriate amount of time to discover “our” west of Ireland. Of course, since we offer custom schedules, requests for a shorter stay will also receive our fullest attention!

Other activities are also available a short distance from Rock House :
– Biking trails between the mountains and the ocean: you will be spoiled for choice, whether you choose to follow the jagged coastline from Westport to Achill Island (42 km, see www.greenway.ie) or trails that will bring you through typical Irish villages and white sandy beaches (yes, they exist in Ireland too !)
– Golf : Some of the 9 or 18-hole courses were built on the seafront, and the pleasure of playing is heightened by the panoramic view.
Whether you are an angler, a hillwalker or a holidaymaker, Ireland will guarantee you bring home wonderful memories.
There is magic at work on the Emerald Isle, and at the end of their stay, holidaymakers and anglers always find they have been won over by the kindness and sense of hospitality of its people and have fallen in love with its scenery.
