Day 1: Wicklow Mountains & Glendalough Monastic Site -After leaving Dublin, We will make our way to our guest house in Glendalough. This is a majestic place, a previously important religious centre in ancient Ireland where St. Kevin resided and lived with his fellow Christians. After your walk, which is about three hours and brings you all around the valley, you will come back to relax at the guest house.
Day 2:Dingle Village & The South Pole Inn -We will then travel to the south west of Ireland to the kingdom of Kerry. We stop at Beenbane beach and you can take the cliff walk into Dingle Village - a wonderful way to arrive to this magical little corner of Ireland!
Day 3: Mount Brandon & Connors Pass-Today we get ourselves ready for an amazing walk up Mount Brandon. It is one of the most scenic mountains in Ireland. The summit is 1000m and should take no longer than 4 hours. After our Adventure we will head back to Dingle and you will have the option to see, swim or kayak with Fungi, a wild dolphin that calls Dingle his home.
Day 4: Slea Head Walk -Slea Head lies ahead of us today, a peninsula that the National Geographic has put in the top 10 drives in the world. Our walk is nice and easy today, with Great views out to the Atlantic and Dead Man’s Island. Right on Ireland's rugged west coast, this is the closest you can get to the US from Europe.
Day 5: The Gap of Dunloe & Killarney National Park- Today you will experience one of the most beautiful walks you will find in all of Ireland through The Gap of Dunloe.  The 'Gap' stretches through the highest mountain range in Ireland called the MacGuillicuddy Reeks. Over the far side, a river boat will take you on an hour long boat ride through the lakes of Killarney finishing at Ross Castle a short walk from Killarney village.  
Day 6 : The Cliffs Of Moher Walk -We now make our way up the west coast and cross the river Shannon by ferry at Tarbert. Heading just up the road, we may stop at Brigid’s Well before we get a start on our walk along the amazing Cliffs Of Moher. Enjoy the mesmerising scenery a safe distance from the edge and marvel at the rugged cliffs, views and the ocean below.
Day 7:The Burren Walk & Galway City- This morning we will walk through this karst limestone region that covers 250 square miles. After leaving Lahinch early in the morning, we will follow the coast all the way to Galway. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end and with heavy hearts we will bid farewell to some wonderful friends made along this 'Southern Gem tour'. Until we meet again on our next Extreme Ireland Adventure!
