For such a small island, Ireland is a unique place when it comes to hiking. A walking holiday to Ireland is therefore a must go for every hiking enthusiast. There are some 954 developed hiking trails across the country, with vastly different landscapes. One day you can climb the hills around Belfast, the next you can walk along Cork's rugged coastline.
As well as burning some calories, hiking is a great way to explore hidden parts of this beautiful country. All you need is a pair of sturdy shoes, a raincoat, some lightweight gear and you're good to go. Ireland offers walks suitable for beginners, like the Dingle Way
, to advanced hikers and from multi-day hiking holidays to one-day hikes. Also, depending on the route, the accommodation options range from full-service hotels in cities like Dingle to self-catering pubs, inns, and bed-and-breakfasts in the more remote areas. As you can see, Ireland has a wide variety of options to suit every trekking enthusiast!
