Walking Holidays in the West of Ireland

Welcome to my guided walking holidays and one-day hikes in the West of Ireland.

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

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 from Dublin and 1 hour north of Galway city. A wonderful area for walking, this part of Ireland offers moderate mountains, cliff-top trails, blanket bog, spectacular beaches and offshore islands.

I am committed to offering my guests an enjoyable walking holiday in wild Mayo and Connemara, while adhering to the principles of sustainable tourism. Discover our history, legends and vibrant culture, while getting out and about. Give me a call !

Je parle français. Ich spreche deutsch.
