'Hiking in Ireland is the total experience, and it is right on your doorstep': Roz Purcell

No matter where you are in Ireland, there’s a trail nearby, offering you an escape from the pressures of daily life.

The hiking options here are endless there’s always a new mountain to conquer, a new trail to explore on the way to your favourite peak, a new season to see it in, or a multi-peak challenge to set your sights on. As someone who has been hiking since childhood, I’m still finding new trails and peaks to challenge myself. For a relatively small island, Ireland punches way above its weight when it comes to exploring the great outdoors.
