Walking day tours

Our walking day tours are ideal for exploring the area on Dublin’s doorstep. All of them include a guided walk between mountains and sea. Meet the guide in Dublin City Center and travel with her by public transport to the start of the walk and back. This is a unique opportunity for exploring off the beaten track itineraries where tourists don't usually venture and for getting a chance to meet the friendly locals.
