Hidden Ireland Houses

Activities › Hiking & Walking

Walking and hiking in Ireland is becoming increasingly popular in recent years. Whatever your age, your level of fitness or experience, basing yourself in one of Hidden Ireland’s historic private houses is an ideal way to enjoy a walking or hiking holiday.

Whether you prefer a gentle stroll in pleasant countryside; a more active walk along a canal tow-path or on one of our new looped walkways, perhaps following the course of a river or along a coastal headland, or a stiff mountain hike there is something here for you.

And country house accommodation is an ideal way to enjoy this too, for you are right there in the heart of the countryside, in a spacious, luxurious country house, with good food and wine, and good company at the end of an action-packed day.

  • Mount Vernon arranges guided botanical and archaeological walks in the famous Burren landscape and there are many superb green road walks nearby to suit every ability.
  • Coolclogher House is surrounded by a secluded 60-acre park providing great privacy just a short distance from the bustle of busy Killarney town.
  • Ballyvolane House offers guided mountain walks in the beautiful Knockmealdown and Galtee mountain ranges.
