Breathtaking landscapes, fresh air, craggy coasts and cliffs, numerous ruins, and more are common when hiking in Ireland. You’ll also find Europe’s largest green space and the longest defined coastal touring route in the World included among Irelands hiking trails. With so much to offer Ireland is a popular hiking destination and has a wide variety of options. Abundant rain, while common in Ireland, may have you considering staying in but you should thank the rain for the lush verdant landscape around you which is gorgeous in any weather. Opt for one of these shorter hikes in Ireland if the weather seems iffy.
May and June are the sunniest months if you want to make the most out of daylight hours for hikes in Ireland you might consider visiting then. Fun fact: there are no snakes in Ireland which means this is one less creature to watch out for while hiking in Ireland. While there is an activity for many interests and hikes for every fitness level we’re going to talk about the best hikes in Ireland that are easy to add to a day of travel, do with the family, or to just make a quick stop and take in the scenery.
Excellent introduction to “hill walking” in Ireland. These are really spectacular beautiful natural waking spaces holding so much of interest along the way. This list brings back so many happy memories of the walks I have enjoyed and also introduces me to a few I have not done. Thank you.
