A place of colour, contrasts and wilderness adventure, Delphi offers a warm welcome to visitors of all ages.
Delphi is located in the heart of Connemara in the west of Ireland, and is just 8.5 miles from Connemara National Park. There is ample opportunity to explore the unique landscape of County Mayo, and the bordering County Galway, by bike, foot or car.
The Mweelra Mountain has a range of hiking trails, including some easier routes and, for the more seasoned hiker, steep summits from which to take in the incredible views of the river and valley below.
Don’t be fooled by the name, which translates to “smooth bald hill”. The Mweelra Mountain is the highest point in County Mayo and stands at an impressive 814 metres.
The range consists of five peaks, flanked on one side by Killary Harbour, Ireland’s only real fjord, and on the other by Doolough Pass, a glaciated valley.
Ben Gorm is another stunning mountain range overlooking Delphi. The 700 metre climb to the summit can be achieved in a few hours and provides a fabulous day out, especially during the warmer months.
A haven for rare flora and fauna, the neighbouring Connemara National Park is most noted for its diversity of bird life. It spans 2,957 hectares of beautiful mountain ranges, sliced by dramatic rivers and deep valleys. The area is covered in purple moorgrass, creating a unique, colourful landscape.
The Michelin guide is brimming with high quality restaurants in Delphi and the surrounding areas.
Treat yourself to a fabulous meal with views overlooking the Bundorragha River, which has a reputation for being Delphi’s “crown jewel”. Alternatively, dine in a country lodge in the shadow of the mountains and experience some traditional Irish cuisine, which will leave you full and content, regardless of your budget.
Leanne, three miles south of Delphi, has some of the best eateries in the county, offering sophisticated dining at very reasonable prices. Here you will also find some high end restaurants, ideal for special occasions.
Experience adventure with a kayaking tour on Killary Fjord - one of the key signature points along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. Combine kayaking with gorge walking for a day of adrenaline. There are a range of guide companies who provide adventure packages, which won’t break the bank. Alternatively, you can take a bike ride or drive the 15 miles to Ireland’s west coast and the Atlantic ocean: make sure you stop off at Lackakeely for vibrant green cliffs falling into crystal clear waters.
The dramatic coastline is ideal for fishing and provides a backdrop of stunning mountain ranges.
Whether you’re looking for adventure, sports or an opportunity to relax, Delphi has something for you. Surrounded by dramatic mountains and close to beautiful coastlines, this Gaelic jewel is the perfect base for a truly memorable trip.
