Burren & Connemara 8-Day Hiking Programme

The Burren and Connemara face each other across Galway Bay, and yet it is hard to imagine two more contrasting landscapes. ‘Burren’ is derived from the Irish word boireann meaning ‘place of stone’, and the name could not be more apt.

There is no part of Ireland where rock so obviously dominates the landscape as it does in the Northwest corner of County Clare. The Burren covers an area of some 260 square kilometres and is famous for its bare limestone pavements dissected by deep crevices and traversed by countless stone walls.

Wicklow 8-Day Hiking Holiday

The county of Wicklow is often called ‘the Garden of Ireland’, alluding to the fine agricultural land and magnificent scenery in the hinterland of Dublin, Ireland’s capital city. There are several fine country houses with estates: Powerscourt, Avondale, Russborough, Kilmacurragh, Kilruddery and Mount Usher. However, Wicklow is not all country estates and green, rolling hills.
The Wicklow Mountains – much older than the Alps – have a character about them that only comes with age! Lugnaquilla is the highest mountain in this region where the predominant rock is granite, forming a plateau mainly covered with peaty soil. The Wicklow Way is the oldest waymarked long distance walking trail in Ireland, offering fabulous walks through this treasured & historic land.

The Antrim Glens & Causeway Coast 8-Day Hiking Holiday

The charming county of Antrim in Northern Ireland is one of the best-kept secrets in Irish tourism. For decades the sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland deterred all but the most determined travellers from visiting this area, and the media coverage of ‘the Troubles’ compounded this, giving the misleading impression that the armoured cars, tanks, bombs and guns were everywhere in the province.

Thankfully this gave us one of the most beautiful and yet relatively untouched regions in Ireland to walk in. The peaceful charm that you find in this wonderful place is testimony to the people who live there – as friendly as you could wish to find and as determined as any to keep this “gem” as it is – unique in all its glory.

Kerry Way 11-Day Hiking Holiday

Ireland’s fabled County Kerry consists of a series of spectacular mountainous peninsulas divided by deep-sea inlets. MacGillycuddy’s Reeks form the centrepiece of the Ring of Kerry, a 179-kilometre circuit from Killarney, via Killorglin, Caherciveen, Waterville, Kenmare and back to Killarney across Moll’s Gap and past Ladies View – one of Ireland’s most famous viewpoints. Weaving between these points are a network of ancient paths that are nearly as old as the land itself, many of which form part of a long-distance track known as the Kerry Way.

Beara’s breathtaking panoramas are dominated by mountains and sea. The Caha Mountains and Slieve Miskish Mountains form the spine of the peninsula, which is washed by Kenmare Bay to the north and Bantry Bay to the south. The folding of the rock strata throughout millennia has left the swirling wave-like patterns across the mountains, which are so characteristic of the Beara landscape.
