Walking Tours in Ireland
Ireland is the land of storytellers, stunning coastline, limitless greenery, and a complicated history. From the bustling cities of Belfast and Dublin to the scenic yet sometimes unforgiving western peninsulas, the Emerald Isle has something for everyone. Grab a Guinness and meet your guide on your walking tour, and see for yourself why so many people fall in love with this place.
If you’re starting out in Dublin, your guide can take you sightseeing on a walking tour through the cobbled streets of Temple Bar and the Trinity College area. You’ll stroll along the famous Liffey River, and be sure to pop into the Guinness Storehouse for a tour. Enjoying a fresh Guinness with a 360-degree view of the city at the top of the storehouse is an absolute must! You can visit Dublin Castle, where your experienced guide will tell you all about the site while giving you some background to 800 years of history. Ireland’s history may be overwhelming at times, but with the right guide, you’ll be entertained the whole time.
Getting out into the countryside, head west to Dingle Peninsula, the Ring of Beara, and the Ring of Kerry. Quaint and colourful villages dot the vibrant green landscape, while the upbeat university town of Galway provides non-stop music and nightlife entertainment. Cities like Cork and Londonderry are also worth exploring, especially on foot.
In Wicklow, you can take a walking tour around the stunning Powerscourt Gardens, as well as Enniskerry, where “P.S. I Love You” was filmed. Check out the Guinness family estate, and explore the scenic views at Wicklow Mountains National Park. For more history, check out Glendalough and the 6th Century monastic site of St. Kevin. In addition to making the most of your guide’s handy knowledge, you’ll get to listen to the lovely Irish lilt for hours!Sign up for a no-cost no-spam traveler account to see hidden VIP trip prices, earn some social conscience karma points, and get in on some awesome prizes too!
