Pilgrims’ Way

 

 

In August 2011, a group which calls itself The Clare Pilgrim Way set out to mark a pilgrim route linking ancient monastic sites, holy places and cultural centres around County Clare and a small section of South Galway.

The aim is to map a Clare style ‘Camino’ with a Celtic spirituality theme, allowing walkers to follow a pilgrim path linking the significant sacred places, sites of cultural and historical significance and pilgrim routes in the landscape.

The route passes through mostly country roads but also includes woodland, bog roads and coastal routes and visits the two island monastic sites of Inis Cealtra on Lough Derg and Scattery Island in the Shannon Estuary.
