Hiking in Ireland

Ireland is one of those countries where there is plenty of wild countryside for someone to explore which is one of the reasons why it is so popular with walkers. With the landscape varying from peaks to bogs, there is something for all abilities. It is worth considering for an upcoming trip.

Head to County Kerry to hike along Cronin’s Yard Loop. At just five miles long it is ideal for those who are new to hiking but who are feeling energetic. Cronin’s Yard is the usual starting point for those who want to climb Carrauntoohil and here it is possible to take advantage of facilities such as changing rooms and showers. One of the advantages of hiking in Ireland is the tranquillity and this is a route that will definitely give walkers time to enjoy the peace and quiet.

For those who want something that requires a little more energy there is always The Famine Walk in County Galway. This is a 10-mile trail that starts in Connemara and takes in the Killary Fjord. There are lakes and mountains lining the walk so walkers will be enjoying spectacular views every step of the way.
