WHY IRELAND?

Our country is steeped in history and story. In every townland, in name and place, there is a story; of people, place, happenchance or pure imagination and legend. Our geography sitting on the north western edge of the European landmass, also made us different. The first settlers some 5000 years ago worked hard to get here! And when they came, they could only imagine what lay to the west where the sun disappeared! Walk here, feel the Celtic spirit, the wild islands, the cultural Ireland famed far and wide.

SELF GUIDED/INDEPENDENT WALKERS

On a self-guided tour, daily walks range from 10 to 25km per day (4-8 hours). You can walk alone or with a group of friends. With our colour Ordnance Survey maps to cover your route, you will have no problem finding your way. You choose when to go, and for how long. We have 8 areas to choose from and it is easy to combine two routes to make a longer walking holiday.

WALKING AND YOU

Whatever your age, experience or fitness level there is a walking holiday to suit. Each tour is graded to give you an idea of how strenuous they are. Tougher tours can be broken up to shorter days on some routes, or by taking rest days. For the not so keen walker, we tailor tours that can be a mixture of walking, driving, biking – whatever itinerary you want, we can put it together.

For the not so keen walker and the avid walker travelling together; just ask us! We have managed tours for every combination of individuals!
