A great introduction to hiking in Connemara
by TommyV  18 Mar 2022
Lackavrea is the first real hill of prominence that people will see when driving along the N59 to Connemara. It's been on my to do list for awhile now and it was great to finally experience such a gem of a hill. The obvious route mentioned by others is the one I followed as it allows for a more gentle ascent of the hill. I have to say this one makes for a great introduction to hiking in Connemara for those who might be starting out hill walking and are not quite yet ready for what the big boys have to throw at them.
