This Walk/Hike is a pilgrimage route to what may be the smallest chapel in Ireland. Its an A to B hike/walk as the accent is little more than 400m with most of that covered if you drive to the starting point shown on the map. It’s a 4.5 hour walk from the start point on the Inagh Valley side to the Village of Maam with a chapel to St. Patrick and stations of the cross located somewhere in the middle. For logistical reasons most people start at the Lough Inagh side, acend to the chapel and return back the same way as to keep going to Maam village would require transport arranged the far side. The Mamean walk features on the Pilgrimage Heritage Trails of Ireland and makes up a 17km section of the Western Way. The starting point is pretty well sign posted as “Máméan”
