Traversing Slievemore from east to west must be one of the best ridge walks in Ireland. It is a fairly easy walk with tremendous views so the return on investment is great. With its position out on the west coast, the views north and south along the coast are very extensive. Perhaps Myles na Gopaleen had these views in mind when he wrote:

"Ag feachaint duit amach fuinneóg na láimhe deise, b'shiúd thíos uaith dúthaí mhaol ocrach na Rosann agus Gaoth Dobhair, Cnoc Fola thall agus Oileán Thoraigh amuí ag snámh mar luing mhór, abhfad i gcéin go taidhbhseach san mball a thig an spéir le fairge. Ag féachaint amach an doras duit, chífeá iarthar Chondae na Gaillimhe, slios mhaith de charraigreacha Chonamara agus amuí uait i bhfairge, Árainn Mhór, na tithe beaga geala i gCill Rónáin soiléir so-fheicse dá mbéadh an radharc go géar agat agus lá samhraidh ann. Ón fhuinneóig chlí chífeá an Blascaod Mór go lom doicheallach mar bheadh eascú uabhásach neá-shaolta ann, 'na luí go tláith ar bharr na dtonn; an Daingean abhus, na tithe ann cruinithe go dlúth le chéile."
