If you're new to hill walking or a seasoned veteran there are plenty of day hikes to do with Mountain trails. Great guides with tonnes of local and nature knowledge.

Hi Ruta D, Book online and choose whether you need transport from Dublin or will make your own way to the hike start-off point. See the Hikes and Courses Calendar on the Mountaintrails website for available options.
