Our Irish walking holidays

There is no better area to experience the spirit of Ireland than walking the west coast in Connemara. Here is raw beauty, unspoilt and in many places wild. Enjoy the uniqueness of an island community on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean on Inishbofin and tread historic routes on the pilgrim path to Ireland's 'Holy Mountain'. Combined with this rugged and truly awesome landscape are stays in some of our favourite boutique, luxury hotels offering traditional, warm Irish hospitality and excellent service. Our Wild Atlantic way walk is stuffed with legends and the spirit of Ireland, for you to discover.

###Why choose a walking holiday in Connemara? The tranquil footpaths we use are varied and stunning making the region an ideal place to explore on foot. Armed with maps and your route directions, you can travel at your own pace, stopping at whim for a photo opportunity, a nose around the local village or a slice of cake. As usual, we transfer your luggage from hotel to hotel so it's waiting for you when you arrive at the end of the day. There are also some great attractions to visit en route, including Connemara National Park, Killary Fjord and even Inisbofin Island where you will spend the night. We include several short boat trips and transfers so that your walks include the best views. Our walking holiday in Ireland is also a classic example of our 'gentle walking' ethos, with no more than 5 hours walking on the longest days. This makes for a leisurely, relaxed holiday which is ideal for families young and old.
