Welcome to Walking in the West of Clare, Ireland!
Please visit us on Facebook for walking schedules and up-to-date info
The Long Way Round provide guided walks and hikes of one of the last truly unspoilt landscapes in Ireland. Join with nature and learn about the history, geology, botany and wildlife of the Loophead region of West Clare. With your Local guide Laura Foley gain access to areas of beauty which are otherwise inaccessible to visitors.
An hour's drive from the world renowned Burren, The Loop Head Peninsula offers a vastly different landscape and geology. We are in a fantastic position situated between the Atlantic Coast and Shannon Estuary and much like the Cliffs of Moher, our Atlantic coast offers a string of magnificent Cliff views. The Shannon estuary is home to an array of sealife and pods of Dolphins which on occasions can be viewed from vantage points along the walks.
Laura offers a schedule of walks including Historical town walks, Nature and bird watching walks and Heritage walks. Each walk is approximately 2 hours long and the cost for each walk is €20 for Adults and children under 16 can join the walk for free once accompanied by a guardian.
Private walks and group walks are also available and please contact Laura to discuss your needs.
It is very important to wear suitable clothing and footwear on our walks as the majority of walks are off road. We will meet 15 minutes prior to each walk in order to register. The meeting points are outlined in the individual walk descriptions and can also be found on the Local Info section of the website.
