We'll begin at one of the area's most beautiful beaches looking out over Clare Island and Inishturk, in an area of international conservation importance. We'll walk along the beach and look at the area's many different seaweeds, including pepper dulse and carrageen moss. You'll learn how to identify them, how to prepare them, and of course, taste them, including some that taste like truffles. As we walk along the beach, you'll learn about the amazing ecology and geology of Connemara. You'll see local wildlife, and if we are very lucky, we'll see otters, seals, and dolphins. You'll discover the oldest landmark of human habitation in the area and learn about how this world-famous dramatic natural landscape has evolved over millennia. We'll explore the geology of the area through the rocks on the beach and discover its importance. We will also see a prehistoric midden and charcoal that's thousands of years old.
Other things to note
Bring a camera, sunscreen, wellies, and waterproof attire.

Remember beaches can be slippery places

I am an ecologist who came to Connemara in 1998 and was captivated by its beauty. I have been living beside this beach for almost 15 years. We built close to the beach—so close that I can hear the ebb and flow of the tide with the waves lapping on the sandy shores. I have seen the beach in winter and crunched across its icy shore, and I have swum its cool seas in summer. I've watched the barnacle geese fly overhead in winter and curlews feed on the wet grass fields beside the strand. I have stood still and watched the otter feeding and have glimpsed the bottlenose dolphins off shore.

We'll be on White Strand Beach on the northwestern coast of Connemara. To the west is Inishturk, Crump Island, The Bills, Clare Island, Achill with views of the cliffs, Mweelrea—the highest mountain in Connacht, and the mouth of Killary Harbour, including the guiding blocks erected by the British navy. The Mayo Hills are peaking over the south and you'll see the pyramidal shape of Croagh Patrick with the white church glinting in the sunlight.

Marie Louise is very knowledgeable and passionate, not only about the seaweed but also local history, and she conveys this passion wonderfully. A great way of spending a couple of hours strolling on the beach, learning which seaweed are good for what and getting to know more of that part of the world!

We really enjoyed the guided walk around Connemara National Park with Marie Louise! The tides and time of year meant that we couldn't take the seaweed foraging course but she was kind enough to accomodate us on a nature trail around the Park with lots of interesting local stories and useful info on the flora, fauna and geological points of interest. Will definitely try to return for the seaside version!

This is a must-do! We had SUCH a fantastic time with Marie-Louise! I cannot emphasize this enough. She’s a natural storyteller — we learned so much about identifying and how to cook seaweed as well as some magnificent history right on the beach. We were laughing and having a great time. Would recommend to everyone!

A very rare opportunity for beginners or seasoned foragers to taste the treasures of the shoreline, I've been foraging for years and there is something special about eating pepper dulse in a salty breeze. Swapped a few recipes with Marie Louise while she gave us the tour and outlined the history of the beach. If you are doing the wild Atlantic way or the connemara loop you'll be a fool too miss this, thoroughly enjoyed it , thanks a million for a very informative and enjoyable day.
