Hiking & Biking Explorer | Dublin to Galway

Discover Ireland on exhilirating hiking and biking trails from the bustle and buzz of the vibrant cities of Dublin and Belfast, to the beautiful, unspoilt shores of the tranquil Inishowen Peninsula and Atlantic coast, this week–long adventure tour is sure to amaze!

  • Few places on earth match the beauty and amazing diversity you'll experience on this outdoor adventure, where an eclectic mix of activities will take us on roads less travelled, through green hills laced with stone fences, and where tranquil pathways take us from one enchanted place to another.

    You'll learn about the history of Ireland, from a time of ancient heroes to 'The Troubles', discover intriguing cities, elegant castles and explore amazing sites, from Bru Na Boinne and the Giant's Causeway to Dun Aengus, all of which are steeped in myth and legend. On the many great hiking and biking trails each day, you'll discover and experience diverging cultures and traditions, from the powerful, political and cultural wall murals of the north, to the lively, traditional rhythms of Inishowen, Connemara and the Aran Islands. At the end of seven active days, there's plenty of time to relax during the long summer evenings, wandering amongst the rural villages, meeting the locals and sampling some of our native 'black stuff' (Guinness), to the beat of traditional tunes.
