The Western Way is a long-distance trail in Ireland. It is 179 kilometres (111 miles) long and begins in Oughterard, County Galway and ends in Ballycastle, County Mayo. It is typically completed in seven days. It is designated as a National Waymarked Trail by the National Trails Office of the Irish Sports Council.
Starting from Oughterard, the trail follows the western edge of Lough Corrib before breaking away across the Maumturks chain at the pass of Maumeen. It descends to the Inagh Valley along the base of the "Turks", following them around to Leenaun at the head of Killary Harbour fjord. The Galway section ends here and the Mayo section begins.
More safety, a climate resilient nature and a beautiful valley to explore, that is the goal of LIFE Sparc .
This European project contributes to the Flemish Sigma Plan, a climate buffer against rising sea levels and extreme weather conditions. To this end, they are developing eight Sigma areas in East Flanders and Antwerp.
You can see how they do this in this animation.
It is even better to view the work on site based on the many walks and activities they offer. Discover them here.
