Walking Holidays in Ireland

Hiking in Ireland has so much to offer; a wealth of breath-taking coastal paths, ancient pilgrim routes, ribbon-like mountain tracks, and moors rich in flora and fauna. Above all, it has the most wonderful people and culture that you will experience in heaps as you walk through this friendly and inspiring land.

Since 2006, Macs Adventure has been helping walkers to explore the wonders of Ireland on foot. With the freedom to create your own itinerary and the knowledge that our team have the expertise to tailor-make your walking holiday in Ireland to perfectly suit you, you can book with confidence. We have searched for the hidden corners to ensure that your walking tour of Ireland is a trip that you will always remember.

The south-west coast is replete with stunning walking adventures, from the stunning landscapes of The Dingle Way, Beara Way and Kerry Way to the rugged and remote Sheep's Head Peninsula. While there are several long-distance paths, there are also some outstanding day walks and hidden corners to visit, which is why we have put together several Drive and Hike itineraries.
