Customer Travel Tip: Buy a Discovery Series map, learn to read it and explore Connemara & South Mayo from on high. No offense intended, but don't assume that because you 'have the Alps in Germany/Austria' that you will be able to navigate in white out whilst off trail on Irish hills. A fall of 200 metres will kill just as surely as a fall from 2000metres. Weather is a killer not altitude. Enjoy

Liked: Location, scenery, for walking - area incl. South Mayo & Mweelrea second to none

Disliked: Absence of low priced restaurants / eateries (with exception of Fast Food restaurant in Leenaun). Irish business people still haven't woken up to fact that a quality main course should be available from eight to nine euro. As a result the overwhelming majority of travellers choose self-catering........& the potential contribution of visitors is lost to the local economy. Short sighted or just plain greedy, I'd say the later.
