Exploring the Emerald Isle: Two Walking Tours of Ireland

December 23rd, 2013 by

Kerry and DingleThere’s something that’s simply magical about Ireland. The land, the people, the culture … and there’s no better way to see and experience the place than on foot. We offer two walking tours of Ireland that will give you the chance to experience for yourself the richness of the country and the warmth of the people.

Dingle Way

This is the Ireland you’ve always dreamed of visiting: Wild coastline running into rugged mountain peaks, glistening bays, sweeping sandy beaches, awe-inspiring cliffs and sea foam-splashed coves. You’ll explore fishing villages that feel as though they have been preserved from another era entirely, and see ancient churches and castles. This trip even takes you through the Irish-speaking area of the Dingle Peninsula, through early Christian villages with iconic huts made of stone piled in the shape of beehives.

The walking is mostly moderate, though there will be one long ascent as you pass beneath Mount Brandon, the highest peak in the central mountain range of the Dingle Peninsula, and the site of a popular Irish Catholic pilgrimage.

Kerry Way

This walking tour starts in the charming village of Glenbeigh, tucked among surrounding hills and the Seefin Mountains. On the Kerry Way, you’ll follow the coast on an old coach road, and catch panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and Dingle Bay. You’ll enter the Foilmore Valley and the magnificent Ballinskelligs Bay.

As you continue to follow the coast, you’ll enter the Derrynane National Park, and have the opportunity to visit the Derrynane House, the ancestral home of  Irish politician Daniel O’Connell—the house tours are interesting if you’re interested in Irish history, but the surrounding gardens are also beautiful to explore. You’ll also have the opportunity to explore the village of Caherdaniel, and the Sneem Estuary before making its way to the shores of Kenmare Bay and the wild waters of Blackwater River before you enter Killarney National Park, where you’ll be enchanted by the ancient oak forest and close encounters with wildlife before you arrive in the beautiful and historic city of Killarney.
