Discover Ireland's Great Outdoors

If you have an adventurous spirit, Ireland will already feel like home. With dramatic scenery around every corner and a traveller's wishlist of geological wonders, including The Cliffs of Moher, Slieve league in Donegal, The Giant's Causeway and the Twelve Bens in Connemara, there's every reason to postpone the day's first Guinness by a few hours and head for the great outdoors.

We really try to capture a sense of "Wild Ireland" in the places we visit on our tours, and a private bespoke tour of Ireland can really capture this rustic face of Ireland if you want to discover it for yourself. But, if you're really looking to get back to nature - with hiking, camping out and so on - then there are specialist Irish tour operators which you might like to consider, too. Giddy Goats Tours is a good example of this, offering hiking tours, tours of the Giant's Causeway, two-day camping trips, and a five-day adventure tour.

There are, of course, many other providers of adventure tours throughout Ireland. Extreme Ireland are one of the most experienced providers of mixed adventure tours, self guided and guided walking tours through the most scenic areas in Ireland. Their guides are some of the most experienced in the business and the local adventure providers they partner with have a great reputation throughout Ireland. The sister company, Irish Day Tours, take travellers to six iconic locations throughout Ireland including The Cliffs of Moher, the Giants Causeway Blarney Castle and Connemara.
