The Letterfrack Poetry Trail consists of nine specially commissioned poems on plaques in various locations.

Easy/moderate 1.5km walking trail takes you from plaque to plaque around Letterfrack village. Each plaque contains a poem. The poets involved are Moya Cannon, Eva Bourke, Rita Ann Higgins, Paula Mehan, Mary O’Malley, Joan McBreen, Theo Dorgan, Louis dePaor and Michael Gorman.

The poems explore the importance of place in all our lives. Some poems are site specific and others are more general in nature and are located in the Connemara National Park, the Connemara West Centre and the village of Letterfrack.
