TWIN TOWNS WALKING FESTIVAL: Croaghconnellagh

Croaghconnellagh is a 523m hill in the Bluestacks range. Less visited than its famous twin – which is home to the masts – Croaghconnellagh is the second peak that forms Barnesmore Gap. Getting to the top is a tough challenge only to be taken on by experienced hill walkers prepared for a good climb, followed by a steep descent over rough terrain. But don’t let the challenge put you off! The rewards are spectacular views, and bagging a hill rarely climbed by others.

Our experienced guides know this route well, so you’ll be well looked after. There are only a small number of tickets available for this walk.

Please note: if weather conditions are unfavourable on the day an alternative walk may be substituted.

Distance / Duration : 10km / Approx 4 hours (the route may vary dependent on weather conditions)
