Explore the Emerald Isle on this Active Ireland Tour

Rousing, rugged, and evergreen. Such is Ireland, an achingly beautiful land whose lilting natural rhythms have inspired writers and artists for generations.

Just one glance at the vast expanses of verdant pasture in the Ring of Kerry, the “savage beauty” of Connemara National Park Oscar Wilde wrote about, County Kerry’s remote Great Blasket Island, or Ben Bulben’s formidable peak and you’ll understand why Irish eyes are smiling and eager to welcome you with a pint and a hearty “Failte!”

There’s no better way to discover Ireland, the country’s cities, and its inviting culture than on foot and like a local through our Emerald Isle guided tour. As a resident expert, your guide will illuminate highlights, share lesser-known gems, and provide a window into the Irish experience.

Together, you’ll hike the Wild Atlantic Way, where some of Ireland’s highest mountains rise to reveal panoramic views. As you walk through ancient sites, your guide and local experts will bring Irish history to life. Your tour winds through the Irish countryside, where heathery bogland and green valleys beckon to your inner poet, then on to the west coast’s rugged cliffs, where stunning views will capture your heart. Though you’ll encounter beautiful landscapes at every turn, your trip to Ireland is also about experiencing the country’s culture and spirit.


Throughout your guided hiking tour, you’ll encounter the legendary Irish wit and humor as local farmers, musicians, and historians share their knowledge and stories. You’ll also stop to relax in some of the Emerald Isle’s liveliest pubs, as well as spots hidden off the beaten path. While in towns and cities, you’ll find galleries, boutiques, and markets to explore. All the while, you’ll enjoy fine Irish cuisine and opportunities to spend your evenings serenaded by traditional music.

Prepare to be swept away by the raw beauty of Ireland and the warmth of the Irish people on this Ireland hiking tour through the Emerald Isle. Our itinerary has been crafted to showcase the ultimate combination of bucket-list highlights and hidden gems far off the well-traveled byways.

Expect to walk and trek Ireland’s trails and greenways around three to five hours per day. At night, you’ll stay at upscale hotels, manors, and inns selected to enhance your experience at each destination.
