Hill Walking

Ireland is a Hill Walkers or Mountain Climbers dream – there are so many hills and mountains to explore throughout our small Island. From Slieve Donard in the North to Ireland’s highest peak Carrauntoohil in the South, and from Lugnaquilla in the East to Croagh Patrick in the West, Hill Walking in Ireland offers an incredible opportunity to become one with nature and explore the beauty of Ireland.

Royal County Down Golf Club is located at the footsteps of Slieve Donard. Perhaps non-golfers in your group would like to challenge this 2,800 foot mountain (850 metres) as the golfers play one of the most famous golf courses in the world.

Ireland’s highest peak Carrauntoohil stands at over 3,400 foot (1,038 metres) and overlooks the famous Killarney National Park.

Ireland has countless walking trails to suit all fitness and experience levels and the Irish climate is perfect to explore these walkways 12 months of the year. All of these walking trails are well signposted and all offer an opportunity to enjoy stunning scenery.

Fairways and FunDays can organise guided walks with experienced mountaineers who will show you some of the most spectacular walkways anywhere in the world.

There is no better way to see Ireland’s beauty and open up those lungs than by exploring Ireland on foot.
