I was working in Dublin for 5 months, and struggling to get out travelling. Paris was my big weekend trip before this tour, and I really should have just gone on this trip twice! Bare in mind the conditions were spectacular on the day I went, but it was beyond beautiful, with sheep posing for photos on the edge of unbelievablly beautiful cliffs. Combined with the views and commentary on the bus tour I joined to get there, I would say this one trip was the quintessence of Ireland! I’ll cherish this trip for the rest of my life, I doubt a single person on the bus tours will truly ever understand what they missed out on. For background, I live close to and have hiked/climbed the absolutely beautiful Canadian Rockies, during my time in Ireland I hiked the cliffs of Howth, the hills between Bray and Greystones, went to Glendalough, Galway, Sligo and Newgrange. This trip with Away a Wee Walk was by far the most memorable and amazing time and place I experienced in Ireland! For hikers it’s a light walk, and for non-hikers expect to walk through mud, have changing weather conditions with no shelter…and in both cases expect to love it!
