Join us on a unique hiking tour to the spectacular southwest of Ireland. On foot and by boat we will discover Ireland hiking trails in Kerry and Cork that explore the wildest corners of this striking landscape. Make the unforgettable journey starting from the historical town of Baltimore, with its tales of pirate invasions, to the most westerly inhabited island in Europe, rich in literary history.
By day experience scenic coastal hikes, ancient historical sites and stunningly beautiful mountain passes of Ireland’s breathtaking southwest. In the evenings relax and enjoy some of the best restaurants and music-filled pubs in Ireland!
Your knowledgeable guide will provide a fascinating insight into the rich cultural and geological history. Spot marine life as you travel to the islands – such as gannets, puffins, basking sharks, whales and dolphins. And don’t forget the colorful characters of rural Ireland you are bound to be introduced to along the way!
Cork & Kerry Highlights
We offer a unique opportunity to explore the islands of South Ireland. This gives you an up close look at life there and the chance to interact with the locals more genuinely.
Straight from the movies, the land and seascapes of the Irish islands will inspire your sense of magic and wonder.

Level of Activity
This is a walking holiday with moderately strenuous hikes over several consecutive days. Daily distances range from 5-8km (~3-5 miles).
Each day usually consists of 3-5 hours of activities, most centered around walking over various terrains. City streets, village cobblestone walkways, well-worn countryside paths with uphill and downhill components. Achieving a specific destination (point A to B) is not usually the goal and alternative transportation or participation level is generally available.
Your day pack will include a liter of water, snacks, rain jacket, sunscreen, personal items, and a camera.
Level of Comfort
As you hop from island to island, relax in a cozy, home-away-from-home each night, hand-picked by for their excellent location, service and comfort.
Curl up in cozy libraries in front of a warm peat fire after an exciting day out hiking the islands. All accommodations provide breakfast.
