Get to know Ireland’s green lush countryside and its rich Celtic heritage during a walking holiday. Varied and often wild landscapes and a dense network of footpaths and trails invite you to explore on foot.

View on Killary harbour, a fjord with moorland landscape. View on rocky coastline and the sea with pink Thrift flowering in the foreground in Ireland. View on green and lush Ireland countryside with a house and road leading off in the distance.
The country’s six national parks are all very different and offer some great walking opportunities. Think about the Wicklow mountains and places like Connemara National Park.
