Walking Tour & Directions

The Colony Tour is a two hour walking tour  around the historic ruins of the Achill Mission in Dugort, Achill Island, County Mayo. The tour is  around a mile in distance and the terrain gentle to moderate. Good footwear is advisable as the ground is rough in a couple of places. The weather in  Achill is always changeable so rain gear or an umbrella is also advisable.
