Travel Tips for Castlebar

Stop the talking - start walking!

by AR76

For 4 days every summer, Castlebar is home to the 4-days-walks, a walking event attracting participants from all over the world.
The Castlebar Walks are officially approved by the IML - International Marching League. In fact, Ireland is one of the eight founding members of IML 17 years ago. To date, there are 22 member countries worldwide.

The Castlebar 4-days-walks distinguish between the Road Walk and the Ramble. Road walkers do 10k, 20k or 40k per day on an individual basis. Ramblers cover up to 30k per day in a group led by qualified guides, and the ramble takes you across broad bogs and mountainsides, sandy roads and moorlands.

Walkers are free to participate either one, two or three days, or the full four days. Every afternoon and evening there is entertainment provided: live music, performances of Irish dancing and at the end of day 4: the Blister Ball.

The views during the walks are amazing... ->proper walking shoes
You may have trained long and hard, but that won't help you if you don't have good shoes.
->an extra pair of shoes
This is Ireland - if your shoes are soaked from the rain, they won't be dry enough for use the next morning...
->a small first aid kit
To solve urgent blister problems...
->an umbrella
Rain gear may protect you better against the rain, but it will also make you sweat more!
->a photo camera
To show them at home what magnificent views you saw on the way.

The wild west....

A famine house....

Note: I do not know the exact history of the ruin in this picture, therefore for me to call it a famine house is a presumption i am making.

An Gorta Mór (the great hunger) occured in Ireland between the years 1845 and 1849. Over 1 million people died of starvation and a further 1 million escaped from Ireland during these years. In fact from 1845 until 1900 the population of Ireland plummeted from approx 8 million people to around 4 million! You can read a brief history of the famine in my travelogue - An Gorta Mór.




I have been in Castlebar and Westport (half hour from Cb) many times, from doing a training course with the Army Reserves or just on holidays. This is one of the most beautiful areas of Ireland.

These photos were taken on two different occasions, on an army trg cse we visited a local mountain Croak Patrick and secondly I drove through this region with some Finns stopping in Westport, Newport, Castlebar, Louisbourg (??), Galway etc

All these photos are taken by myself or my gf unless otherwise stated. If you want to use any of them please ask first. Thanks a million.© Enda McGuinness 2001 (copyright)
