About our Ireland holidays

Walking holidays in Ireland

Avid walkers will find much to recommend hitting the trails in Ireland. The Ring of Kerry is crowded with tourist buses, but there is a walking path, the Kerry Way, broadly following the same route and allowing you to step into the scenery, not just admire it through a window. You can find stunning routes in the Aran Islands and the Dingle Way is another superb long-distance route in Kerry. Walking in Ireland does mean taking your chances with the weather, so aim for April to June for your best chance of dodging the rain as well as the crowds.

Cycling holidays in Ireland

Both the Wild Atlantic Way and the Irish Greenways repurposed railway lines have been immensely successful in promoting cycling in Ireland. Self guided holidays now take you along well-surfaced routes through magnificent countryside and coast, between welcoming B&Bs. The Greenways in particular has boosted incomes in rural communities with the opportunity to serve passing cyclists, and also to commute more easily on two wheels. Cycling is a way to not only explore the Emerald Isle’s dramatically beautiful landscapes up close and personal, but also to indulge in culture, cuisine and craic outside the big towns and cities.

Rail holidays in Ireland

Rail tours in Ireland allow you to see a lot of the country in just a short space of time, while travelling in comfort between pre-booked accommodations selected for their locations and the warmth of their welcomes. Dramatic views can be had on routes along the Wild Atlantic Way, but if you’d like to throw some culture in alongside the scenery, opt for a Tri-Cities rail tour. You’ll have plenty of time to explore Dublin and Galway as well as nipping over the border to Belfast, and even taking a short ferry out to the beautiful Aran Islands.
