This walk begins in Medlicott Street then you continue up Main Street and turn right towards the Roman Catholic Church. The church is famous for its magnificent stained glass by renowned artist Harry Clarke. Turn right again at the Church (a choice of two roads, one before you pass by the church and one after) then return to the trailhead by crossing the viaduct that once carried trains onto Achill.
