Irish Walking Holidays
If you’ve found this post on Irish walking holidays you’re probably aware that Ireland is renowned across the world as a top class walking holiday destination. It is not a country of guaranteed sunshine – so we don’t do guaranteed sun, sea and beach type holidays – but Irish walking holidays are famous the world over. Our lack of incessant sunshine means that Irish walking holidays are very attractive and, consequently, walking holidays are a major attraction to Ireland as a whole.
Irish Walking Holidays – Not Weather Dependent
Luckily, the weather is largely irrelevant for a walking holiday, with the right rain gear there is no problem. This is one of the reasons why Irish walking holidays are such an attraction to a worldwide audience. You always run the risk of getting a little wet, but as with everything else in Ireland, the rain is usually in moderation. We do get a lot of it, but it tends to be ‘soft rain’ which is easily combatted with some light rain gear. After that Irish walking holidays are fairly easy to organise and very seldom get rained off.
Irish Walking Holidays – What’s the Attraction?
There are really too many reasons to mention why Irish walking holidays are such an attraction – but we’ll have a stab at outlining a few. It’s got a lot to do with the magnificent beauty of the Irish countryside, then there is the easy-going nature of the people. Ireland is, of course, renowned for the ‘craic’ – pronounced ‘crack’ but not remotely illegal. A further attraction is that you can do several completely different walks on differing terrain within just a few short miles of each other and the fact that Irish mountains, forests and countryside are just the most ideal places to walk on the planet.
Irish Walking Holidays – Where do I Sign up?
There are many, many Irish walking holidays that you can take on, with umpteen varieties each and every year. Many areas hold annual events with walkers returning each year to participate.
In 2013 we would recommend basing your holiday around the St. Declan’s Way Gathering Walk which takes place from historic Cashel in Co. Tipperary to Ardmore in coastal Co. Waterford co-inciding with the Ardmore Pattern Festival.
The walk will take place from July 24th to 28th. Book soon if you are interested as places are limited. Click on the link above for more information or click here to go straight to the booking page.
