The easiest way to get under a country’s skin is to walk it. In Dublin,
tours whisk visitors away on quirky explorations of the city via an historic leper colony or Jurassic creatures. Alternatively, with the (free) Dublin Storymap App you can find your own way around the city guided by video stories told by locals. In Belfast,
the Titanic Walking Tour
is lead by an ancestor of an engineer who worked on sailed and sadly perished with the ship of dreams while
Belfast Guided Walking Tours
whisk you through the city’s Victorian charms such as the Botanic Gardens, Victoria Street’s linen ladies and a leaning clock tower. If nature calls, hike into heaven in the likes of Down’s Mourne Mountains, Waterford’s cinematic Nire Valley or Cork’s coastal dreamscape, the Beara Way. The Kerry and Wicklow Ways, too, are meticulously mapped tours of east and west and the Great Western Greenway doubles as both a cycling and a walking route taking in Atlantic coast views that have been making visitors speechless for centuries.
In short: pack your hiking boots. You’ll thank us later.
