Hiking and Cultural Discovery from Sligo to Donegal to the Mournes

What the Trip is Like

This trip is Level 3+, depending on the hiking options you choose. As we explore the varied landscapes of the north of Ireland, we will have a choice of hikes (either moderate or strenuous) most days, stretching over terrain that ranges from flat and boggy to rocky. You carry only a daypack with the essentials: rain gear, fleece sweater, water bottle, and camera. Weather is a dominant force in Ireland and will play a role in how the trip takes shape. The Trip Leaders keep the itinerary flexible to take advantage of local conditions and give you the best possible experience. We recommend you make a special effort to be in good physical condition in order to be able to fully enjoy the trip. Daily brisk walking and/or regular hiking (or using a stair-climbing machine at your gym) are excellent preparatory exercises.
