1st June, 2013: International walkers for Burrishoole Walking Festival

BURRISHOOLE is welcoming all walkers this June bank holiday weekend for the annual walking festival.

The festival committee have been putting their best foot forward for 26 years now, an achievement that was recognised when they scooped a Mayo People of the Year award recently.

Again, from Saturday to Monday, June 1 to 3, walking enthusiasts of all levels will enjoy this unique opportunity to explore the countryside off the Great Western Greenway.

An enthusiastic bunch of local volunteers will guide groups through some of Ireland's most breathtaking landscapes, along low and high level trails overlooking the famous Great Western Greenway and Clew Bay between Newport and Mulranny. Families are also accommodated with walks on the greenway.

Each year the walks attract people from around the world and locals are particularly urged to take a few hours out and enjoy these fabulous walks right on their doorsteps.
