The Bangor Trail is one of the toughest trail hikes in Ireland. This trail follows an old drover path from Newport Co. Mayo to Bangor Erris and has a history going back to the Iron age. It is not a Nationally Approved Trail, it's not for the faint hearted, it is for the seasoned hiker, it is waymarked and passes through very remote [by Irish standards] back country.Show more
