This May, we are introducing TWO new hiking trips for 2020 – bringing our total number of hiking trips to 10.

Wilderness Ireland specialises in bringing the intrepid traveller to Ireland’s wild corners. Instead of following the typical tourist track staying in big hotels, Wilderness trips focus on the stunning but under-appreciated regions of the Emerald Isle, enjoying the local hospitality of family-run businesses and rural communities.
