Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A small group of us walk this in July, it is suitable for all ages but you would need to be a regular walker and active. It's around 3 hours, with picnic tables dotted around in strategic places where you can sit for a while and just take in the breath taking views. We all wore runners but it was dry all the way around for us. Boots would be recommended if you own a pair. That was our second time and then a lovely pint in Pattens when you finish. Great morning or afternoon activity to do.

Make sure you bring correct walking boots - runners are not an option! difficult in parts not for the inexperienced - but very worthwhile and a nice way to spend an afternoon. WELL SIGNED - follow the ARROWS

The most beautiful views of Achill Island. Not too strenuous either and great place for a picnic! Bring hiking boots if it’s been wet as it’s marshy in parts but wasn’t an issue for us today😊

Incredible views on this fabulous walk. Highly recommended. Bring a picnic for the stunning perspective of Clare Island which can be enjoyed on a strategically placed bench. Fantastic. And you can reward yourself with some refreshment at Patten's bar on completion - a really friendly spot.

This a pleasant walk. The signs say it is a very strenuous walk but I would disagree. There are a few steep bits but the path itself is very easy to follow. Some great views!

A must do activity on the stunning Achill Island. Set behind the warm and friendly Johnny Pattens bar is a 2 hr walk which leads you to a number of stunning views. There were 9 of us ranging in ages from 78 to 11. Everyone loved it.

Great walk with beautiful views. Well sign posted too. Summertime/dry weather a must. We had a drink in Pattens Pub on our return. Great pint 👌. Give the walk a try, you won't be disappointed!!

Great, well-maintained walk with great vistas and some history, too.
Patten’s pub at the trailhead offers a friendly place before or after the walk.
Right on the Wild Atlantic Way.

We always love a loop walk and this one is superb. It starts outside Pattens Pub in Derreens with a very interesting information board and is very well signposted all the way. The views are magnificent and there are several picnic tables in particularly scenic spots. Wear your waterproff walking shoes for a few boggy stretches. It took us two hours, a moderate hillwalk. Would love to do it again.
