Achill Island Walking Festival
Friday 12th - Wednesday 17th March
Achill Island Walking Festival is held annually, and includes Guided and Self-Guided Walks. It is a unique Festival in that it includes St Patrick's Day Parades with the traditional pipe bands. Achill is now synonymous with this great tradition and, indeed, this is an experience not to be missed. Achill Island and the Curraun Peninsula offer a hillwalking paradise. Unlike many other popular walking destinations in the West of Ireland, where access to the land is becoming increasingly restricted, most of the countryside on Achill is in common ownership which means that it is freely open and accessible for hillwalking.
