Cloghane Brandon Hillwalking and Music Festival for 2017

Standing on the top of the Irelands second highest mountains is one of life’s most powerful experiences but to do as part of the Cloghane Brandon Hillwalking and Music Festival is like a dream come true. This extraordinary walking festival takes place every year in the breath-taking Mount Brandon Range.

The walking festival offers walks for all the family. Experienced walkers will navigate Mount Brandon and the mountains surrounding the Connor Pass. Walkers who decide to do the moderate walks will get to walk the spectacular Sás Creek to Brandon Point loop walk and the top of the Connor Pass. Families will be guided by Louise Overy the head Aquarist from Oceanworld along Fermoyle beach. For the first time ever we are also offering a Mindful Hillwalking into Macha na Bó.
