Our Self Guided Walking Holidays

What Our Visitors Say

Our self guided walking tours give you the freedom to hike at your own pace while enjoying special places to stay each evening. On the first day our driver will meet you at the airport or the train station on your arrival and bring you to your first guest house. Each day we arrange luggage transfers between your guest houses as you hike and provide you with the latest waterproof walking notes and detailed maps for your route. 

Breakfast each morning is included as well as your packed lunch when there are no suitable options on the trail. In three locations (Black Valley, Glencar and Lauragh) there are no local dining options so we arrange a home cooked meal for you at your guesthouse that evening. We provide you with a local Irish Sim Card with unlimited local calls for your phone and you can contact us at any time for backup and support. We take great pride in ensuring that you go home having experienced the best that Ireland has to offer. 

You can choose from 29 different self guided walking holidays based along the Wicklow, Dingle, Kerry and Beara Ways. Our Dingle, Kerry and Beara Way walking holidays are based in the South West of Ireland. While the Wicklow Way walking holidays are an hour south of Dublin in the east of the country.

On some of the trails, it has been appropriate to organize two categories of walking holiday. The Mountaineer walking holiday is for those who enjoy a full day’s hike each day covering the entire route. Our Rambler holidays cover a shorter distance each day allowing perhaps later starts, earlier finishes or longer breaks during your day. The Mountaineer holidays average between 18-28km (11.5-17.5 miles) each day, while our Rambler holidays average between 12-18km (7.5-11.5 miles each day). We can of course add in a rest day or two during your holiday and we would be delighted to advise which location might be the most appropriate for you given your interests.

We have not included the distance & altitude for the optional first and final day’s walks. Further details on each page. We can also create a bespoke holiday for you depending on your distance preferences and interests along the route.
