In counties Sligo and Donegal, explore pristine surfing beaches, quirky coastal towns, vast moors, historic castles, iconic mountains and sweeping glens.
On Sligo’s Coolera Peninsula, hike mountains like Knocknarea and Ben Bulben, visit the 5,000 year old Megolithic tombs at Carrowmore, and try your hand a surfing in the surf village of Strandhill – or simply the windswept dunes and lakes that inspired Irish poet, W.B. Yeats.
In Donegal – National Geographic Taveller’s pick for No. 1 Coolest Place in 2017 – find windswept beaches and coastal villages clinging to the shores, walk the desolate moors, and explore the eerie valleys and mountains of Glenveagh National Park and beyond. Stand at the other-worldly northernmost point of Ireland as well as at the edge of Slieve League, among the highest sea cliffs in Europe.
We had the pleasure and good fortune to have both Donncha and Louise on our trip. Louise was amazing and while I am sure she is treasured in the office- she would be a fantastic guide! Louise went above and beyond on our trip- ensuring all hikers were enjoying their Wilderness Ireland experience. I cannot express enough my gratitude for her help pre-trip and during the trip! Many thanks to both Louise and Donncha for their generosity of knowledge, culture and spirit on this trip.
