We really are blessed to have some of the most amazing scenery in the world in Ireland. This website will give you some useful information and an idea of what to expect from some of Ireland’s most scenic through hikes and day hikes.

It will also give you some insight into my own personal experiences of these truly beautiful walks.

Recommended Resources

A fantastic resource for walking in Ireland is the Discover Ireland website. It has some useful info on major walking options in Ireland.

I really like the Sport Ireland site which allows you to search walks in Ireland by County, Grade and Length.

It’s so important to respect nature as we enjoy it. The principles of “Leave no Trace” are a cornerstone of this philosophy.
