Slievemore Mountain is a mountain on Achill Island. Rising to 671 metres above sea level, it offers a breathtaking view of the island’s surroundings and the ocean. A real challenge for a hiker, the site is usually a nice place for a walk, and even offers its visitors magnificent archaeological sites!
Slievemore Mountain will appeal to hiking enthusiasts as well as lovers of history and archaeological remains.
For beyond its marked trails, the southern side of the mountain is home to a magnificent abandoned village bearing the same name as the mountain: Slievemore.
This village dates back to the 12th century, but would have been occupied until the 20th century before being definitively abandoned. Exceptional, it has a dark charm and will delight lovers of history and traditional Irish architecture.
If you prefer commando trekking, don’t hesitate to leave well-equipped. The view from the summit is fantastic, and should reward your efforts!
