Hiking Walking Ireland or ‘HWI’ aims to provide extensive information of long distance hiking trails throughout Ireland which offer an unique and authentic experience to walkers looking for a hiking holiday in Ireland.

We have chosen to provide information for ‘off the beaten’ path type trails as we believe these trails provide walkers with a more authentic and unique hiking experience which can often be lost among the more popular/touristy hiking routes.


Hiking Walking Ireland Our Story

Inspiration comes from many places. For Hiking Walking Ireland our inspiration came from the popular end lines of Robert Frost’s poem, ‘The Road Not Taken’.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost

It was from this inspiration that Hiking Walking Ireland was born. We want to showcase and provide information on more off the beaten trails which provide walkers with a great sense of solitude surrounded by stunning unspoiled scenery and landscapes. A hiker’s paradise if you will. From this we have developed our belief that; “All trails have a story to tell, some trails just need someone to tell it” – HWI
