‘The Telegraph’ newspaper (UK) recently named The Bangor Trail as one of Europe’s top 24 walking routes. A challenging 30km hike, this trail brings you from Newport to Bangor Erris through the uninhabited mountain range of Neiphin Beg. The trail has a long history and may date back to the 16th century. It was the main route for people & livestock, and emigrants travelling from Bangor Erris to Westport would have used it. Said to be one of the loneliest places in Ireland, you will enjoy utter silence and isolation amongst the wild mountains. There is a hut on the trail that sleeps up to six people, providing decent shelter for campers. With no roads and no houses for miles around, The Bangor Trail is an exhilarating escape into the wilderness of the Erris region – voted the best place in Ireland to go wild!
