Tips / Destination

Ireland’s rolling hills of green, majestic mountain landscapes and dramatic coastlines make for some of the best scenery in all of Europe. For that reason it’s also one of the best places to hike.


Diamond Hill Loop, Galway

Galway’s Diamond Hill Loop is an easy hike with a summit of only 445 meters. However, it offers some of the most awe-inspiring views in Ireland. On the way to the top you’re treated to views of Kylemore Abbey and the Twelve Ben Mountains.


The Causeway Coast Way

The Causeway Coast Trail is Ireland’s most popular hiking trail. One look at it and you’ll understand why. The trail winds its way along stunning coastal cliffs and some of the country’s most famous landmarks. Both the Dunluce Castle and Giant’s Causeway rest on the moderate-level path.


Mount Errigal, Donegal

The hike to the summit of Mount Errigal is difficult. The peak rests at 800 meters and the trail itself is a stretch of wet, often muddy earth at the bottom. If you can conquer the two-hour trip up, you’ll have a view of Donegal that is out of this world.


Benbulbin, Co. Sligo

The Darty Mountains are the most unique mountains in Ireland. Though the summit is only 526 meters, the steep trail is incredibly difficult to hike. The flat top of the mountains provides incredible sights of Yeats.


Achill Head

The foggy cliffs of Achill Head are both beautiful and unsettling. The region is famous for its wealth of signal towers and peregrine falcons that call the island home. The hike alongside the coast is strenuous and not for beginner hikers, but certainly worth the astounding views.
