3 – WALK TULLY MOUNTAIN or the Dawros River
Tully Mountain is one of those Connemara Gems that is not as popular as it should be. It stands opposite the Connemara National park and provides a different and unique perspective of the beaches and the whole Connemara area. On a clear day you can see further north as far as Croagh Patrick near Westport as well as the Aran Islands, Kerry, and Galway Bay. The tricky part of this walk is that the path is undefined so you need a little bit of common sense and some experience walking in order to navigate yourself to the top. In saying that it is pretty easy to see the top the whole way to it is hard to get lost. ( I have provided video instructions below so this will give you a clear picture of what I am talking about) Unfortunately there is no marked path up to the top but you should start your way on one of the not so steep sides to climb the top or it can get very exhausting. There is also a pleasant surprise at the top which is a small lake. The climb the mountain takes about 2 hours. The mountain and lakes at the top should take about 3,5 hours.
