Where it all began...

Wilderness Ireland & Sister Company Wilderness Scotland

Wilderness Ireland is a tour company built upon the experience of its sister company, Scotland’s only 5-star, multi award-winning adventure tour operator, Wilderness Scotland.

In 2009 Wilderness Scotland was named the No.1 Adventure Travel Company in Europe by National Geographic Magazine. Wilderness Scotland is also internationally recognised for its innovative approach and commitment to sustainable tourism, holding the Green Tourism Gold Award, Best Green Tour Operator in the World Travel Awards in 2007 and holding 5 Star Responsible Tourism status by AITO.

More recently, it became the only tour operator to receive a Great Places to Work award under the “Best Workplaces of 2018” of the small business category.

Wilderness Ireland

Wilderness Ireland was founded in 2014 using the same values as sister company Wilderness Scotland, by like-minded individuals whose goal was to share Ireland’s beautiful outdoors and amazing landscapes with visitors looking for an authentic, off-the-beaten-path kind f vacation.

Our team at Wilderness Ireland benefits from Wilderness Scotland’s years of experience running incredible trips, shared knowledge and systems, numerous adventure travel trade affiliations and our own in-depth country local knowledge and outdoor experiences to create and deliver uniquely designed trips on the stunning Emerald Isle.

With offices based in County Sligo, in the northwest region of the Wild Atlantic Way, Wilderness Ireland has a dedicated office team who are experts on Ireland, adventure travel and upscale accommodation. Wilderness Ireland has been running independently since 2014, growing steadily as we strive to bring visitors to Ireland’s wild places to meet some of its most interesting characters and enjoy authentic experiences. In 2018, Wilderness Ireland won Sligo’s Local Enterprise Award, and was nominated to compete in the national enterprise awards.

Our growing team is made up of passionate experts who love discovering and sharing Ireland’s most amazing places. We also work with a number of local guides who are knowledgage and charismatic about showing Ireland’s outdoor scene with visitors. At Wilderness Ireland, we feel privileged to live and work in one of the most beautiful parts of the world and we are excited to share it with you.
