The West Coast Challenge

The West Coast Challenge

03 April 2020 to 05 April 2020

Standing at 814 metres tall, Mweelrea is the highest mountain in Connacht. Looking out over Silver strand and Killary fjord, the views from its summit are breath-taking. You can even catch a glimpse of Croagh Patrick! Our West Coast challenge is to summit both of these beautiful peaks in the one day.
