TRANSPORT

BY CAR

Travelling from Galway

Follow the signs for the N59 Clifden and after passing through the towns of Moycullen and Oughterard you will arrive at Maam Cross (easily distinguished by Peacock’s hotel complex on your right). At this crossroads turn right following the signs for Leenaun. At the next T-junction at Keane’s Pub, turn left. After about 11km this road will bring you into the village of Leenane. You will then go through the village and taking the Clifden Road (keep the water on your right hand side) where after another 5km you will see the sign for Killary Adventure Centre. Our building is on the left hand side of the road as you travel Leenane to Clifden.

Travelling from Westport

Once in Westport look for the Leenane/Clifden road (signposted N59) and follow it for about 30kms to the village of Leenane. Once in Leenane turn right onto the Clifden road (N59) keeping the Killary Fjord on your right and we are 5km along this road on the left hand side. We recommend going via Westport if you are coming from Dublin on a Friday evening to avoid the traffic in Galway City.

Travelling from Dublin

To get to Killary Adventure Centre from Dublin you can travel via Westport or Galway City. The road is mostly motorway and dual carriageway from Dublin to Galway, which makes it a more direct route. To get to Westport from Dublin you will be taking the M4 motorway and then joining the N5 (national route) from Mullingar via Longford, Strokestown, Castlebar and then Westport. As you do not pass through any cities this may be a quicker route during rush-hour periods.
