West of Ireland Weekend.
The West of Ireland from North to South is one of the most remote places in Europe and considered as a great place for adventure. Its coastal golden colour beaches, the green and beige mountains in a blue and grey sky as a background offer an eye watering panoply of colours and landscape like a beautiful painting.
This hike is a great opportunity for anyone who want to practice mountain skills 1 or 2 and improve their navigation skills, with a qualified instructor for a full days training and gain useful information, skills and tips that will help keep you safe on the hills and mountains during day time, night time, in bad weather condition or both.
What gear do I need !
Wear comfortable clothing like – leggings, tracksuit bottoms, breathable T-Shirt and fleece & an extra warm layer. Be ready for the rain and pack a rain jacket and rain trousers. A hat and gloves to keep you safe from the wind. Wear good sturdy walking shoes or hillwalking boots with woolly or synthetic socks. Have a backpack with water (minimum 1.5 litres, sandwiches and snacks, coffee, or tea. There is nothing more rewarding than a nice cup of coffee or tea drunk on top of the mountain.
