Millstreet Autumn Walking Festival

Walk in the footsteps of legends as Millstreet’s upcoming Festival traces the route of O’ Sullivan Bere’s epic winter march over 400 years ago from Castletown Bere to Leitrim!
Our ‘A’ Walk between Ballyvourney and Millstreet traces the route over arguably the most rugged and beautiful part of this entire journey.
We earnestly hope to finish the day with less casualties than O’ Sullivan Bere suffered!!

Our ‘B’ & ‘C’ Walks are similarly rewarding with no less a personage than Minister for Tourism and Sport Leo Varadkar stating that our ‘B’ Walk (The Claragh Loop) is his ‘ favourite festival walk of 2011’ .

Our ‘ C’ Walk reflects the historical influence of landlords in Millstreet. Commencing at the Wallis Arms Hotel and taking us past the ruins of the once magnificent Mount Leader Estate to a viewing point on Claragh Mountain overlooking Millstreet and the Blackwater Valley.

Full restaurant facilities are provided by the Wallis Arms Hotel which is Base Camp for the Festival.

Looking forward to you joining us for what is certain to be a memorable walking experience.
