Best Hikes in Ireland

The Emerald Isle is a treasure trove of wonderous hiking trails that journey through enchanting landscapes and vibrant towns and cities. Ireland is one of our most popular hiking destinations, so we’ve rounded up our best hikes in Ireland for you to choose from, including the Dingle Way, the Wicklow Way, and for a bit of a slower adventure Hiking Ireland’s West Coast.


The Dingle Way (West Coast) Best for coastal scenery and quaint villages and pubs

This is a stunning circular hike along the coast, around the Dingle Peninsula, in Country Kerry on Ireland’s west coast. The most popular of our 5 tours on the Dingle Way is the 10 days/9 Day itinerary. This hikes the entire route with some long days of 14-17 miles and visits all the quaint coastal villages (and pubs!). If you're short of vacation allowance or wish to hike a bit less, we have several options to accommodate this.


The Wicklow Way (East Coast) Best multi-day hike and Dublin culture

The Wicklow Way and mountains are located south of Dublin, on the east coast. These tours all start with a night in Dublin. We have 4 tours here, the most popular being our Dublin & The Wicklow Way in Style which showcases great accommodation alongside time in the vibrant European city of Dublin. If you'd like more hiking, then The Wicklow Way 7days/6 nights is a great option.


Ireland’s West Coast Best for ancient ruins, ancestry and remote beauty

A series of truly delightful hikes which are slightly easier on the legs but embrace all of Ireland’s beauty and spirit. The top of our recommended list is Walking Ireland’s West Coast with the cliffs of Moher and the limestone landscapes of the Burren. If you want to see more but still enjoy some hiking, our Wild Atlantic Way Drive & Hike which starts and ends in Dublin should be at the top of your list.


The Kerry Way (South-west) Best for mountains and long hiking days

Located on the peninsula south of the Dingle, the Kerry Way starts in the gorgeous town of Killarney and loops around the coast. It's an area of unspoiled beauty and home to the highest mountains in Ireland (2,000ft). The Kerry Way 11 days is our most popular with some simply wonderful long days of hiking.


The beauty of Ireland is that you can easily combine 2 tours if you can’t decide which is best – a great option if you're making your hiking adventure part of a longer vacation to Europe.
