Hill Walking Trails and other Activities
As already mentioned, we are located on the Western Way walking
trail. This leads you around the lake shore to the scenic
area of Maum (where director John Ford filmed "The Quiet
Man"). Stop at the famous Keane's Pub in Maum and have
lunch or a quiet drink then be collected by one of our lodge
boats (prior arrangement necessary) for a boat trip on the
lake. Perhaps stop on historic Castlekirk - a small island
housing the ruins of a substantial fortification. Round your
day off with one of our wonderful home cooked meals at Nonaim
There are many other walks available around Nonaim Lodge
- one to suit any level of fitness.
Or why not try exploring the vastness of Lough Corrib with
its hundreds of islands? Bring a picnic, swim or simply relax
on a quiet island. Visit the famous island of Inchagoill with
its ancient churches one of which is early 6th Century and
is reputed to be the burial place of St. Patrick's nephew.
Other activities include:
Nonaim Lodge is in the ideal spot from which to explore the
magic of Connemara
Shopping in Galway and Oughterard
Spend your morning browsing the shops in Oughterard then continue
on to "The City of the Tribes"
There is a range of excellent golf courses throughout Connemara
and Galway including one in Oughterard. Oughterard also has
a Pitch and Putt course for the more leisurely.
Horse riding facilities are available nearby and cater for
all ages and abilities.
Or if all these are too much, simply relax. Do nothing but
read or take in the marvelous scenery. Sit in our garden or
lounge and unwind in our stress free environment. Whatever
your interest is we are certain that we can help make your
stay with us even more enjoyable.
