In the unlikely event that Walk Connemara cancels a walk or other event, you will be entitled to a full refund. Walk Connemara is not responsible for other expenses you may have incurred, e.g. travel or accommodation. Note that Scheduled walks may not go ahead if there are insufficient numbers, in which case, prepaid bookings will be refunded in full.

Weather Conditions

Under no circumstances can Walk Connemara be held responsible for weather conditions. If our guides judge that a given walk is unsafe under the prevailing or (forecasted) weather conditions, we may change the walk location or route to a safer alternative.  (e.g. to a lower level or less exposed location). You are not entitled to cancel any confirmed booking on the basis of weather conditions.


In the event of a particular guide being unavailable, Walk Connemara may substitute another, suitably qualified guide to lead a walk. For safety reasons, participants must follow the directions and advice of the guide at all times, and be aware that routes may change at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances.

Equipment, Fitness

Walk Connemara will advise all participants in advance of clothing, equipment and other requirements for a walk or activity. Note that most walks are "off-trail" and require waterproof hiking boots with good grip and ankle support as well as waterproof raingear and extra layers of clothing. (Hats and gloves are often needed, even during the summer). Click here for information on Recommended Equipment. You agree that you will inform your guide in advance if any relevant medical conditions. If our guide judges that a participant is not correctly equipped or is otherwise unsuitable for a walk, they may be refused participation. 

Warnings, Disclaimer

Climbing hills and mountains is a dangerous and sometimes demanding activity. Steep ground, exposed rock, and cliffs – which are a feature of many of the walks described here - bring a serious risk of injury from a slip or a fall. In addition, there are other risks; strong winds or misty conditions can develop; loose rocks can fall down to hit a person below; hypothermia can set in; underlying health conditions can be triggered by strenuous exercise. While this site highlights some particular dangers, it is not possible to list them all. Therefore, all clients are warned to take reasonable precautions before setting out. Walkers should also ensure they have sufficient physical fitness and experience before taking on any of these hill or mountain walks. In particular, it is recommended that walkers without a guide should have a proper map and compass to navigate effectively in poor visibility – and know the weather forecast. While every effort has been taken to ensure the walk profiles listed here are correct, Walk Connemara accepts no responsibility for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies - or for any loss or injury that could result. 

Respect for Property Owners

Please respect the property of landowners, by closing any gates, taking care of fences and avoiding animals. While there are currently no major issues with accessing most of the walks listed here (see our News and Events page for updates on access issues), access is at the discretion of the landowner so this could change. You should leave if requested. 


While we have public liability insurance, clients are not covered by our insurance. We strongly suggest that you get your own insurance. Ideally this should be a personal public liability and holiday insurance, which may cover you if you fail to make the walk due to any unforeseen circumstances or indeed if you fall ill or suffer a mishap during a walk. Sometimes this may already be covered in your own health insurance. We advise you to check what is covered by your insurance.
