Walking Holidays Ireland

Welcome to guided walking holidays Ireland.

At Tourism Pure Walking Holidays, we offer you guided walking holidays in the wonderful, wild, rugged Mayo and Connemara, in the West of Ireland.

You are welcome to join our small hiking groups on walking tours to some of the most magnificent and inspiring areas of the western coast of Ireland.

Mayo and Connemara occupy the far west coast of Ireland, 3 hours west of the capital Dublin and 1 hour north of Galway city. A wonderful area for walking, this part of Ireland offers mountains, cliff-top trails, blanket bog and offshore islands.

I am committed to offering my guests a fun walking holiday in wild Mayo and Connemara, while adhering to the principles of sustainable tourism. I’m delighted to have you visit my walking holidays Ireland site. Give me a call !
