Why not spend a few days walking in the hills on the Dingle Peninsula. Corcha Duibhne as it is known in the Irish language is a truly magnificent area, with expansive beaches, moorland, rivers, lakes and hills. We can also introduce you to “Cúpla focal”, a little of the Irish language spoken by the local population of this part of Ireland.
Our hike leads are all qualified Mountain Leaders, with current First Aid certification and a good knowledge of the Leave No Trace principles. They will look after your safety, point out items of interest and any hazards, advise you about gear and food and generally ensure you get the most from this wonderful walking experience. We carry an appropriate level of public liability insurance to cover our activities and all walkers are advised to review their personal accident insurance before they set out walking. To ensure your enjoyment and safety we apply minimum and maximum group numbers on all of our activities.
Ireland enjoys a temperate climate and our weather is affected on a daily basis as much by the speed and direction of the wind as by the season of the year. This means that we don’t experience extremes of temperature but the weather can be quite changeable from day to day and on occasion this may lead to some alterations to planned routes.
Routes may vary depending on interests of the group as well as prevailing weather conditions, route choices include:
