Suck Valley Way is a 100km Waymarked Walk Way that runs through the Suck River Valley, incorporating parts of counties Roscommon and Galway. It is unusual among Irish Waymarked Walks because for most of its length it lies across lowland farms. It also traverses the boglands and callows along the river Suck with their numerous lakes and drainage channels. The varied landscape includes gentle hills, forests, bogs, meadows and farmland, and the lovely Suck River is crossed no less than six times via old stone bridges.
The monuments of history are everywhere and the bird and plant life offer a delightful study for the botanist, ornithologist and anyone who loves nature. The Way passes through “The Nine Friendly Villages”, Ballygar, Creggs, Glinsk, Ballymoe, Ballintober, Dunamon, Castlecoote, Athleague and Mount Talbot.
A variety of accommodation is available all along the Walk/River Suck in Bord Failte approved premises. The owners specialise in catering for walkers and provide meals & pack lunches. Walking Holiday Packages can be booked through the Centre.
