This has been organised through Conamara Sea Week and is a free event during the festival
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you and all dear to you a very Happy New Year with our best wishes for 2014.
In between the windy-wet days here at Renvyle House Hotel and Resort over Chrstmas, we've also had some 'gems' of days for our guests to head out walking. One of the favourite choices is walking the Diamond in the Connemara National Park. It is a wonderful faciltity less than 10 minutes from Renvyle House. There are beautiful beaches within walking distance of the hotel; great, white strands to walk and blow all the cobwebs away.
Within our website we have a few walks around the area which are suitable for almost everyone including around the Renvyle Peninsula and by Tully mountain.
May 27th to Jne 6th in Letterfrack and the Renvyle Peninsula
"A Festival comprising of music, cycling, walking, dancing and a hint of madness!Conamara is probably the largest area of outstanding beauty in the whole of Ireland. It is a complex area and we will be attempting to create a warm, nonthreatening space in which people can somehow touch this magical landscape."
With great walks and talks held at Renvyle House Hotel. Hotel residents can join the guided walk for free:
Thursday 2nd June, 9pm at Renvyle House Hotel: 'New Discoveries in Conamara' – a talk by Michael Gibbons (free admission)

A snippet from last year's Festival:
There are some great walks around the Renvyle Peninsula which we will upload from time to time. The peninsula has a great history and some sights of archaeological interest as well as great fresh air and stunning scenery.
On a clear day you can see the chruch on the top of Croagh Patrick in Co. Mayo! There is also great wildlife in the area.
There is one walk which is very manageable and in the Connemara National Park. It's the walk to the top of Diamond Hill and has various looped walks, depending on how long you have, along the way. The views from the top are amazing. You can see to Mayo and all around Connemara, views over Kylemore Abbey and the stretch of bog across to south Connemara. Click Letterfrack, Diamond Hill to get the details.
There is another looped walk around the Renvyle Peninsula that also has great views and plenty of interesting things to see along the way: Renvyle Country Roads.
During our weekend breaks and midweek breaks, if you have a group of 8 or more interested in a guided walk, we would be happy to provide a qualified guide for you.
