Ireland

Description

Beara Peninsula

With its green hills, wet bogs, wild open countryside and dramatic cliffs along the Atlantic coast, Ireland sits at the most westerly edge of Western Europe. Enjoy an abundance of sea birds, ancient churches and stone walls, and the occasional forest and beach. Trails will lead you along Irelands clear streams and wonderful valleys, passing castles and farms, and offer panoramic views of mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. No wonder hill walking is popular, but with Ireland being relatively sparsely populated it never gets busy.

There are over 30 National Waymarked Ways, adding up to about 3000km of walking trails all across Ireland. The Ways are clearly signposted with standard waymarkers: a yellow arrow and walking man. A wide choice of detailed maps and guidebooks exist for all trails. Famous are the Kerry Way (215km) around the southwestern Iveragh Peninsula, the Dingle Way (179km), also in the southwest, and the Wicklow Way (127km) south of Dublin in the east. The European long distance trail E8 runs right across Ireland, starting from Dursey Head on the west coast, to Dublin in the east, partly coinciding with the Kerry Way and Wicklow Way.

Walking in Ireland is possible all year round. Ireland has no "right of way" and expect to walk on (forest) roads in many places. Irish weather can change frequently and suddenly, so take care to bring a rainproof coat at all times. Stiles and bridges have been built where necessary. Nevertheless be prepared for very wet and boggy terrain at times. Accommodation comes in all forms, ranging from basic hostels to luxury hotels, as well as B&B's and guest houses. And of course there are the legendary Irish pubs for you to enjoy a pint of stout.
