Here’s a round up of our favourite walking and cycling holidays in Ireland to inspire you, each selected for their pleasing combination of everything this wonderful little country has to offer:
Cycling in Connemara
Leaving from the effervescent city of Galway, where a boundless energy pulsates through cobbled streets like a bodhrán at the heart of a Celtic jig. You’ll head west to the wilderness of Connemara for a soul-soothing colour palette of burnt orange, mossy greens and purple heather. Cycling through this landscape evokes an exquisite sense of lostness. You’ll regain yourself with a heart meal in one of Westport’s many excellent restaurants.

Prices start from €716 pps sharing for 8 nights from Galway to Westport (10 % discount applied).
Walking the Wicklow Way
Setting off from Bunclody along secluded roads and quiet mountain trails. The path tumbles its way through through forests and farmland, before taking you back in time to the monastic site of Glendalough. There is a wealth of Irish heritage to be uncovered along this peaceful route which finishes up in Ireland’s capital city of Dublin, we suggest booking an extra couple of nights to soak up what this bustling city has to offer.

There’s just something about this part of the world which evokes a sense that anything can happen and it’s this effortless charm that keeps us coming back for more.
