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 !

Often, It’s the Simple Pleasures…

While we all love to view the spectacular sights and experience the wonderful places, often it’s the simple pleasures that we enjoy the most.

Like sitting on a rock, in silence, and watching the seals go about their daily routines. Or sharing a forest track with a hare for a surprisingly long time. Or coming across a fox in the middle off the road after dark, sitting on his hind legs as a dog would. Indeed, when he eventually noticed my approach, that fox jumped up, left the road and took up the same sitting position on a narrow garden wall.

Autumn in the West

I’ve always loved autumn.

As is my wont when I have a bit of spare time, I recently went to a wood I know near Lough Key Forest Park to look for some deer.

Aasleagh Falls to Drummin Village

Aasleagh Falls is a tiny but celebrated waterfall at the head of the Killary, Ireland’s only true fjord, in south County Mayo. The very beautiful Erriff River tumbles down the couple of metres, before babbling over rocks and into the sea just beyond.

St Kevins Way in Wicklow

St Kevins Way in Wicklow was the target as I left Mayo in the dead of night recently. A supposed pilgrim’s path, St Kevins Way travels some 25 km from Hollywood in the east of the county, over the Wicklow Gap and down into Glendalough, the great monastic city of the Wicklow mountains.

Corraun Peninsula – Between Island and Mainland

Corraun is kept attached to the Irish mainland by rocky boggy land to its east, barely 800 m wide. Off its western shore, meanwhile, a channel just 150 m wide holds Achill Island at bay.

Bangor Erris to Slieve Carr

Rather than simply moving along The Bangor Trail and then veering left, while out for a hike last week, I decided to leave the village of Bangor Erris, cross over the modest summits of Knocklettercuss and Maumykelly and head for the peak of wonderful Slieve Carr beyond.

Hedge Life at our Mayo Home

Our hedge gives us great joy, especially during spring and early summer. As much as I’d love to live out in the wilds of Mayo, maybe under a mountain or by a lake, with a wooded area nearby, unfortunately this isn’t the case. At my semi-urban home, the hedge separating our house from the open fields beyond, with her Ash, Whitethorn, Bramble and wildflowers, is my little bit of nature.
