This is most of the Western Way from Oughterard to Leenane. What's missing is that it stops about 6km before Leenane at the Sleepzone Hostel. To go through to Leenane, follow the trail markers near the end. Time is off and possible to do in a day but plenty of B&Bs around. A relatively flat route so able to cover a lot of ground relatively quickly but a lot on road which won't suit some people. Possible option if mountains covered in mist.
