A Great Weekend in Cong

I enjoyed the company of a really great group of walkers over the bank holiday weekend around Cong.

We completed three days of walking, with just two showers on the Saturday interrupting an otherwise glorious sun-drenched weekend. Cong was seen in all its splendour, with great séisiúns in both Lydon’s and Danagher’s pubs and many walkers commenting on the spotlessly clean state of the lovely village.

We walked a total of around 6 hours on Saturday, followed by 5 on both Sunday and Monday. I’ll post some pics later on.

The area around Cong and Clonbur villages on the Galway Mayo border is ideal for walking, boasting native and mixed woodland, the two great lakes of Corrib and Mask, limestone pavement, like that of The Burren, a nice small mountain with fabulous views in all directions and possibly the prettiest village in Ireland.
