More Products from Hilltop Treks

Day 1:
Scenic Drive from Dublin, Walk in Glendalough, Monastic site of St Kevin.
Glendalough Valley Walk – Loop Walk – 11Km – Approx 3.5hrs – ascent 380m
Your adventure starts with a pickup in Dublin where you will meet your guide. Then it’s of to county Wicklow “the garden of Ireland” just south of Dublin. County Wicklow is known for its scenic beauty and its here where Hollywood come to make most Irish films e.g. “P.S. I Love You” and “Brave Heart”. Wicklow is a great place for many outdoor activities and its where people from Dublin like to spend their weekends exploring the hills cycling or walking before relaxing over a great meal and a fresh pint.
Day 2:
Kerry, South Pole Inn Pub, Cliff Walk, Dingle, Unique Pubs.
Dingle Coastal Walk – Linear – 8Km – 2 hrs – Approx 2 hrs – ascent 120m

Morning: Today after breakfast we will be travelling south all the way down to Dingle in County Kerry. On the way we will be take a stop to visit the picturesque town of Adare in Limerick. This town has to be seen to be believed with its small thatched cottages and brightly coloured buildings. It is home to Adare manor which was once home to Earl of Dunraven. We will be staying in the small fishing town of Dingle.
Afternoon: On our way to Dingle from Adare we will stop along the way to visit the town of Annascaul which is famed for being the home town of Tom Crean, the great Irish explorer who shared voyages with Scott and Shackleton to the great Antarctic. On his retirement from the navy he returned home and founded a Pub called “The South Pole Inn” which is still there today. The guide will drop you all of at Beenbane beach so you enjoy a cliff walk in towards the village of Dingle – a fantastic way to arrive !
Day 3:
Walk on Mt Brandon, Stay Dingle
Mt Brandon – Linear Rtn – 8Km – Approx 5hrs – ascent 750m
Morning / Afternoon: After a hearty breakfast we will get ourselves ready for one of my favourite walks in this area, Mt Brandon. Which is named after Saint Brendan the voyager; some think he even got as far as North America.
Mount Brandon is a blessed mountain and there is a pilgrim trail to its summit and is one if Irelands holiest. It is less than 1000m but even though it is a pilgrim walk it is quite a challenge. The walk will take about 4- 5hrs and the views from its summit are breathtaking. From it you can see the Atlantic all around you on the Dingle Peninsula, the Blasket Islands and Ireland’s highest Mountain range on the Iveragh Peninsula.
Day 4:
Cliff walk to Ballyferriter, ‘Hurling’ on the beach , Stay Dingle
Cliff Walk – Linear – 8Km – Approx 2hrs – ascent 150m
The Dingle Peninsula drive is one of the most scenic in Ireland and the National Geographic placed it in one of the top 10 drives in the world and when you do it you’ll appreciate why. We will follow this drive from Dingle to the Slea head and onto the view point for the Blasket Islands. The Islands are famous for their Gaelic writers and the whole area of Dingle is what’s called a “Gaeltacht” an Irish language speaking region. So the guide will teach you a “cúpla focal” (couple of words).
Day 5:
Ireland’s Highest Point, Killarney National Park, Stay Killarney
Carrauntoohil – Linear Rtn – 12Km – Approx 6hrs – ascent 850m
Morning/Afternoon: Today is the big walk of the tour so it’s an early start to get over to Killarney and drop our bags into our new accommodation before heading across to Carrauntoohil. This walk is weather permitting as your safety is paramount to the guide and us. An alternative suitable walk will be chosen by your guide in the Killarney National Park depending on the weather and the groups abilities.
Now all going well and the weathers good then we will head to the summit as planned. Carrauntoohil is 1039m tall, which is small if you live in the Alps but huge if you live in Holland so all due care must be taken. Thousands of locals and visitors climb this every year and you feel a great sense of achievement on getting to the top.
Day 6:
Lahinch, Cliffs Of Moher Walk, Stay Doolin
Cliffs of Moher Walk – Linear – 8Km – Approx 2.5hrs – 100m
Morning: This morning we are on the road again taking a route up along the west of Ireland known as the “Wild Atlantic Way” crossing the River Shannon at Terbert. The river Shannon is named after an ancient Celtic Goddess and is Ireland’s longest and most impressive river. As we cross the mouth of the Shannon on the ferry keep an eye out for the schools of Dolphins to be seen everywhere. When you dock on the far side you will be in County Clare.
Afternoon: Once we are in County Clare we will follow the coast road up towards the town Lahinch. This coastal town is a surfer’s paradise and has become more popular due to the great waves here. It’s also a great holiday destination for Irish families with many other activities on offer as well. Making our way northwards we will visit Brigid’s well before we start our cliff walk towards the Cliffs of Moher. The walk is fantastic and the cliffs themselves are a true treat for all the senses.
We will be staying in Doolin, which is has some of Ireland’s finest musician’s playing for free in it’s bars.

Walk in the Burren,, Galway City.
Burren Walk – Loop – 7.5Km – Approx 3hrs – 140m
Morning: This morning we will make our way to one of the strangest landscapes in Ireland and there are a few, The Burren. This is a limestone karst and was sitting at the bottom of the sea many years ago, but you can still see that clearly today. The term “Burren” is derived from the Gaelic for “stony place”. The Burren is also famous for its many different and varied types of flora which are just unique to this area.
We can enjoy our last walk together on this moon like terrain before we say good bye to the west and all its wonderful adventures.
Afternoon: We make our way to Galway city “city of the tribes”. This is a great little city know for its relaxed and bohemian feel. You can spend hours just walking about the small streets while listening and watching street performers of all types.

When we reach Kylemore Abbey owned now by some very friendly Benedictine Nuns who would be happy to show about this romantically located building.

This kind of work was called relief work although it didn’t give a lot of relief and many people died during the construction of this famous track. The track is generally flat and follows alongside Killary harbour, the only natural fjord in Ireland. We start the walk near the town of Lenane and take in oart of the Western Way. Then follow the old road alongside Killary harbour with Mweelrea the highest point in Mayo adding a wonderful backdrop to this breath taking setting. When we reach Roseroe pier we then follow another small road back by Lough Muc and Lough Fee where Oscar Wilde spent much of his youth in his father’s fishing lodge.

Glencolmcille – Loop Walk – 10Km – 2.5hrs – ascent 280m
Morning / Afternoon: Ardara is the capital of Donegal tweed so we can not visit this area without visiting at least one tweed manufacturer. Afterwards There will be a choice of walk both are spectacular but are weather dependant. The cliffs at Slieve League are the highest sea cliffs in Europe and are truly magnificent but can also get extremely dangerous depending on the winds. So the guide will decide which is best for the group. The alternative walk is as impressive but safer walk in the Glen of Colm Cille.
Day 12:
Glenveagh National Park, Glenveagh Castle, Ardra
Lakeside Walk – Linear Rtn – 7Km – approx 2hrs – flat (option to extend)
Morning: Donegal sits in the far north west of Ireland and has some of the most amazing beaches and unspoilt scenery in all of Ireland.

The park also contains approx 100 hectures of natural and semi natural woodland.

Grianan An Aileach, Derry City, Dunluce Castle, Stay Ballintoy
Morning: This morning we visit an ancient fortress of the Celts called Grianan An Aileach, which is very impressive and gives you an insight of the archaeology and history of this great race. Then we make our way into Northern Ireland and the city of Derry. Derry or Doire is the Gaelic for Oak and was founded by one of our great Saints Colmcille. Today however Derry is a very lively city with great history and also one of the only remaining walled towns in Ireland. Although even with its recent troubles the people of Derry are some of the most welcoming and friendliest in all of Ireland and that’s saying something.
Afternoon: After our stop in Derry we will take the most northly coast road in Ireland and visit the Dunluce castle, which sits on a rock out at sea and was once owned by the Scottish Clan of the Mc Donnell.
Evening: This part of Ireland is greatly under rated for its natural beauty and scenery and we are going to spend the next two nights at the heart of it in Ballintoy. This part of Ireland is also the film location for the very popular TV series “The Game of Thrones”

Giants Causeway Walk – Linear – 16Km – 5hrs – 580m (Option to shorten)
Morning / Afternoon: In the morning we will visit the “Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge”, which is an old fisihing bridge along the shore line here and well worth a visit. Then we have an incredible coastal walk all the way from Ballintoy the world famous Giant’s Causeway, which are called so due to the legend of Fionn mac Cumhaill. Others do suggest some volcanic action beneath the sea but what do they know of giants. Either way this walk is incredible, so have your cameras ready and batteries charged as this is probably one of the best coastal walks you will ever do.
Day 15:
Tour of Belfast, Royal Meath, Newgrange, Return to Dublin.
Morning: Unfortunately we are coming to the end of our incredible journey together but there are still a few places to take in on our back to Dublin.

Belfast today is a thriving city and much has been done to renew it from its recent troubled past.
Afternoon: On our way back to the Capital we will pass through the Royal county of Meath, which was once a province in Ireland itself and the seat of the ancient Celtic High Kings of Ireland. The area of Bru Na Boinne (Boyne Valley) is an archaeologists dream with monuments over 5000 yrs old such as New Grange, Knowth and Dowth. This area is stepped in all stages of Ireland’s great and mysterious past.
