I just completed the Donegal guided hike with Linda. I have never had such an amazing vacation...ever. I am now doing a short self guided tour in Dingle and having a wonderful experience. Linda was a fantastic guide, she was a wealth of knowledge of Irish history, legends, archeology, geology and other varied stories. She knew just how to encourage and keep us going(usually with a promise of biscuits!). WOW. I am trying to figure out already how to come back and do another guided hike. Oh and did I mention the food??? Or the amazing B and B's. You will not be disappointed. Thanks a million, Ireland Walk Hike Bike for a fantastic experience.

Recently completed our second walk with southwest walks. Again everything went well. Landscape was beautiful (even in the pouring rain), people on the walk/hike with us were all fine folks, and nothing I have ever known was like the care and attention we received before the trip. They make travel as painless as possible and take care of all the details you might want them to. We were well cared for [and very well fed] throughout.

From South West Walks Ireland

South West Walks Ireland was started in 1994 by Linda Woods.  The realisation of a dream – we want to show people “the real Ireland” the way it should be seen – slowly, intimately and knowledgeably.

Twenty years later, our terrific office personnel and great guides all share the same philosophy – “to take people into those hidden parts of Ireland that few know about and give people a real “taste and flavour” of Ireland the way we know it”.

Travelling with a group of friends? We can offer special, custom made holidays just for you. Many of you are asking for your own exclusive holiday and we have had some terrific experiences on offer. If a group of you want to come on a holiday specially designed for your own group, we will be happy to organise this for you. Guided or Self-Guiding, exclusively yours!

On a guided walk holiday your enjoyment is most important to us. With that in mind all your holiday plans are taken care of from when you arrive until you depart – giving you time to unwind and relax into the Irish “vibe”.

Our Self-Guiding Hike holidays are perfect for you if you are happy to guide yourself from place to place. We book all your accommodations for you, organise to have your luggage transported from house to house for you and give you detailed route notes and maps for each walking day.

Our bike holidays are ‘Go as you Please’ trips. Choose your holiday location from our range of options and we then plan your holiday details for you. Quality cycles await your arrival in Ireland, bed and breakfast accommodations are booked along your route and your luggage is transported for you.
