Join us on this inspiring hiking adventure that will take you to some of the most scenic settings of the west of Ireland.
Travel from the wildflower covered landscape of the Burren hiking along the wild western shores of the Atlantic to the Aran Islands and over the mountainous wildernesses of Connemara.
Visit remote Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) communities and stay in authentic comfortable Irish accommodation. Discover flowers from the arctic and the southern Mediterranean while exploring the Burren hiking. Your knowledgeable guide will provide a fascinating insight into the rich cultural and geological history of these rocky wild landscapes. They will help you identify the rich flora that we will come across, such as the unusual Spring Gentian or the Bee Orchid; identify wildlife that we will spot on our walks and introduce you to some of the west coast’s most colourful characters.
This trip is graded moderate. Our moderate graded walking holidays involve straightforward hiking, following generally good trails with no major ascents. These walks are pretty leisurely and will last for around 5 hours each day. The terrain underfoot will usually be on paths or hill trails, which may still be muddy or rough in places. The daily walks are mainly glen and coastal hikes, with some ascents of low level hills, up to around 1,500 feet / 450m high.
Paul and John were amazing guides, and extremely thoughtful of every detail. They helped make this one of the best guides tours we have ever had.
