The 2016 Foxford Walking Festival will not now take place.

The Walking Festival committee, have decided not to hold a Walking Festival in 2016. The committee are not in a position to organise the Festival this year due to personal commitments, and the work load involved. It is intended to reconvene later in 2016 with a view to reconstituting an expanded festival committee to organise and plan the 2017, and subsequent Walking Festivals.


In the meantime, please browse the site to see where we went in 2015.

Foxford Festivals Weekend 2015


What a weekend! From fishing to fireworks, rowing to rambing, owls to The Ox and everything in between. The Burger Bar sold out of burgers, it took two River Walkbusses to get all the walkers to Nephin, the sun shon - mostly - and a good time seemed to be had by all.


See the Foxford Ramblers Facebook page for loads of pictures from the walks and various events.

Note from Chairperson of Foxford Walking Festival 2015

“Following discussions with the Riverfest organisers, we agreed to hold both festivals over the same weekend as we felt there was a need to provide entertainment for walkers in the afternoons/evenings and Riverfest fulfils this need perfectly. Energetic walkers will now be able to enjoy Riverfest activities on their return to the town on both afternoons and people attending Riverfest will have an opportunity to sample the beauty of the Mayo countryside on organised walks. We are confident that the two festivals will complement each other and the two committees are working closely together to ensure the success of both”.

Comment from Brian Quinn, Client Services Manager, Fáilte Ireland

"Foxford Walking Festival is an ideal example of a community run festival. As an experience off the Wild Atlantic Way, it draws in visitors from near and far, to enjoy the glorious scenery and incomparable welcome of north Mayo. I'd like to wish the organisers and Foxford Ramblers Walking Club all the very best"
