Mount Brandon, named after Saint Brendan the navigator, is steeped in Irish Mythology and pagan history. It belongs to the top 10 highest mountains in Ireland. You will be treated to 360 degree panoramic views of Dingle Bay and Castlegregory at the summit. This is a moderate but extremely rewarding 4 hour walk and is a favorite with our guests. If you are lucky you will meet the local farmer for a chat and get a few selfies with his fluffy flock!
Finish your Ultimate Overland tour with a rewarding hike up Croagh Patrick. This mountain is named after the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick. It will, undoubtedly be one of your adventure activity tour highlights with spectacular views of Clew Bay from the summit. This is traditionally a pilgrimage walk and older climbers can still be seen to climb it barefoot. We will let you decide on the footwear! It takes about 2 hours to reach the summit and about an hour and half to get back down again.
The Cliffs of Moher are of course another highlight on our off the beaten track tours. We avoid the masses and coaches and trek along the beautiful coastal stretch along the cliffs. The Cliffs are 214 meters at its highest point and stretch for 8 kilometer’s along The Wild Atlantic Way. On a clear day you can see the Aran Islands and if you are lucky you will spot a Puffin or two. The Cliffs of Moher was nominated to become the 8th wonder of the world!
