Walking Tour of Ireland - walk on ancient paths

The most popular way to walk in Ireland is to travel with a group on an escorted walking tour of the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry.

Group Size for our Irish walking tours:
  • Your Guided walking tours Ireland group is small with 6 - 14 people from all over the world and are fully inclusive, giving you super breakfasts each day, glorious picnics each walking day & superb dinners each evening.
Each walking day we hike 8-13 miles and the maximum height is 2000 feet. The routes are relatively free of traffic. The terrain varies by region, from easy to more difficult. You need only walk as far as you want each day.

When is the best time to walk in Ireland? April through October are best. We offer very few walks at other times of the year.

Our Tour of the Dingle Peninsula begins in the Slieve Mish mountains once home to a mythological Celtic princess. Here you will enjoy panoramic views of Tralee Bay before arriving in the bustling cosmopolitan, seaside town of Dingle. Gaily painted houses lead to a busy harbour where artisan cafes and craft shops vie with traditional pubs humming to the sound of Irish music and song.

In sharp contrast, the weather-sculpted lands beyond Dingle on the famous Slea Head seem to have regressed in time, isolated by mountain and ocean. This is particularly true of the ancient pilgrim route that winds through stone-clad fields and fuchsia-rich lanes from Ventry Beach to the majestic summit of the holy mountain - Mount Brandon.

Walking for singlesTraveling alone?
Some people do not take an active vacation because they find themselves in the position of having to travel alone. What they usually don't know is that many active people travel alone. Our walkers may be tired at the end of the day but they will never be alone. The people in your group share your sense of adventure and exploration - they are as interested in meeting you, as you are interested in meeting them.
