Què farem?

We will explore Cleggan headland. A coastal walk of 6km distance and a beautiful part of Connemara that is mostly overlooked by tourists mainly because of limited access. You will have the feel of being on a wild uninhabited offshore island but without the complications in getting there.
The meeting point for the walk is at Clifden town centre, where I will pick you up by car. The drive is about 15 minutes.
From our starting point, we will have a climb to Cleggan hill (146meters). There is the ruins of a Napoleonic watch tower on the summit and a great place to take in the dramatic views of the surrounding area.
We will then proceed towards the coastline to look at the varied birdlife along the cliffs. fulmairs, kittywakes, guillimots and razerbills are some of the birds we can see.
Continueing on, we come to a cove with a shingle beach. Here I will talk about the various edible seaweeds.
We follow the coastline, until we arrive at Cleggan head. Here we will find an arch, a sea stack and the largest sea cave in Connemara.
On our way back to our finishing point, we will see a well preserved 5,000 year old court tomb.
Other things to note
This is an off-trail walk over uneven terrain which is a mix between firm and soft under foot and also some steep ground .The level of difficulty is moderate so a reasonable fitness level is required

I am qualified as a marine- and countryside guide, approved by Failte Ireland. I have 22 years experience mainly as a mountain guide in my area. Born and raised in Connemara and being one of the locals, I never take for granted the beautiful place where I live. It has so much to offer to anyone with an adventurous spirit.
My passion is sharing my knowledge of Connemara's unique landscape with visitors.

Magnificent !! Sean We loved your wilderness which we could not have access without a local guide, these beautiful and impressive cliffs, autumn colors, 360-degree views Sean is full of knowledge about fauna and flora cliffs, he was kind enough to try to speak French, with our English it was perfect And especially especially especially the coffee accompanied by your homemade biscuits on a culminating point, sumptuous! Thank you Sean for this moment which will remain one of the most beautiful in Ireland, Chantal and Gérard France

My daughter and I had a wonderful walk with Sean across the Cleggan Peninsula. Really good to walk with someone who knows the area so well. Beautiful scenery, great chat.

Das war eine sehr interessante Tour in einer wunderschönen Landschaft und mit nur 4 Teilnehmenden sehr individuell gestaltet. Ich würde jederzeit wieder eine Tour mit Sean machen.

Der hike mit Sean hat richtig Spaß gemacht und alleine wären wir diese Strecke niemals gelaufen. Grandiose Aussichten und interessante Geschichte(n) der Gegend. Und die selbst gebackenen Kekse von Sean sind ein Traum.

This experience was stellar. The terrain within the area covered was much varied and tremendously beautiful. Seans was a font of knowledge covering history and lore of the area as well as the names and uses of most of the plants, pointing many I would have overlooked.

Had a lovely long hike with Sean. He has shared his passion for the Conamara region, showed some local flowers and seaweed that were edible and told interesting historical facts during the hike. Would definitely recommend!
