What you'll do

This is a shorter version of my 10km walk ( https://www.airbnb.ie/experiences/242255) for those who are time limited. "So much to see so little time" An unique experience to walk with me and my friendly dog Kobe along hidden paths on the wild Atlantic Way sharing stunning vistas across Galway Bay to the hills of Clare and the Aran Islands and inland through traditional Boreens (lanes) with unspoiled natural plant and animal habitats where you might see Connemara ponies, donkeys, seals and much more. We will complete this 5km walk at a pace to suit everyone who would like to join me to share these wonderful places. Follow us on instagram @walkthehiddenwaw
We will finish enjoying good coffee and freshly baked scones in a local cafe near our meeting point or along the shore weather permitting.

Hi I am Irene, born and living in Galway I have a huge love for my local area.My Newfoundland Kobe and I love to explore off the beaten track. This is one of our favorite walks showing the very best of the West of Ireland. I've trained in the hospitality industry and worked in many places around the world but this is home. Everyone loves Kobe and he loves everyone

This was a wonderful experience walking the coast and boglands of Galway, led by Irene and Kobe, the gentle giant! Irene was knowledgable about the area and has a great eye for spotting rare native flowers. Great to get out in the fresh air, and topped off perfectly with a homemade bun and a hot coffee after! Would highly recommend!
