Slower Adventures in Ireland

If there is one thing the Irish do really well, it is extending a warm, and heartfelt welcome. The people of the Emerald Isle are endlessly hospitable, quick to share a story, offer a helping hand, and tend to be full of craic! Join the locals in a traditional pub to experience the friendly atmosphere and locally brewed craft beers at least once, and we promise you won't be disappointed. 

One of the best ways to immerse yourself in this beautiful European destination is by going at a slower pace. Explore the remote landscapes and incredible scenery on foot, allowing you to take it all in, and have time for side visits and drawn-out picnic lunches on the beach. Ancient sites can be found everywhere, with ring forts, stone structures, and tombs scattered throughout. 

If you are looking to explore the iconic sights of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Coast combined with some gentle walks in one of Europe's most distinctive moon-like landscapes, then Walking Ireland's West Coast is the perfect tour for you! A free day in Doolin allows you to be creative with your time, visiting the other two "Arans" or admiring the staggering Cliffs of Moher from up close. Walking in Connemara showcases the unspoiled and rugged beauty of Connemara in all its glory with relatively easy walks. The warmth of the Irish people is second to none, simply pick and itinerary and we'll take care of anything else!
