Walking Inishbofin Island, 1 day self-guided, Connemara coast – Wild Atlantic Way
Come explore magical Inishbofin (Island of the White Cow) off the coast of Connemara along the Wild Atlantic Way. Inishbofin has become the first Irish island to receive an international ecotourism award.
Board the ferry at the small fishing village of Cleggan and take in the spectacular land and seascapes as you sail to this small island. Walk the short distance from the ferry to the hotel, and enjoy some freshly brewed tea/coffee and freshly made homemade scones while watching a short video about the island explaining the fascinating heritage, history and geology of the island in brief. Then go for an invigorating self guided walk, with maps provided around the scenic Westquarter Loop.
Inishbofin has a selection of official looped walks, two Green Coast awarded beaches, a dive centre, an equestrian centre, bicycle hire and many more activities and sites to see. The island is a great place for bird watching and the corncrake can be heard here every year. Return to the hotel for delicious homemade soup and sandwiches before boarding the ferry back to the mainland.
