Description of Trail

Spectacular scenery abounds on this loop which takes you on grassy paths, earth banks and open ground as it follows an old earth bank around the steep cliffs of Mayo’s rugged and beautiful Erris Head. At the Head’s northernmost tip a railed viewing point gives views of Illandavuck Island, Pigeon Rock and dramatic sea arches.

There may be some sections of soft or wet ground as it is grassy on this trail so a good pair of waterproof boots is highly recommended.
