Hidden Ireland Tours


The Hidden Ireland Tours is a travel company made up of men and women with a deep vocation for sharing their extraordinary knowledge and dedication to service with travellers to the Emerald Isle.


The concept behind the Hidden Ireland Tours grew out of a close friendship between Irish guide, Con Moriarty and American tour operator, Binky Oswalt who co-founded the company in 1989. Since then Binky has been the first port-of-call for many discerning travellers. In response, her professionalism - and love of Ireland has yielded countless one-off itineraries for each guest. In Ireland, Con leads a team of passionate guides who simply love what they do and with whom sharing Ireland is a truly extraordinary experience.

7 Day Itinerary West Kerry Walking Tour

Our classic walking tour of County Kerry is an intimate exploration of nature, history, archaeology and the mythic lore of the peninsulas of Beara, Iveragh (Ring of Kerry) and Dingle along with the Killarney Valley and Killarney National Park, the McGillycuddy Reeks, Gap of Dunloe and Black Valley and the majestic islands of Skellig Michael and of the Great Blasket.


Days 1 - 2 Killarney National Park and Beara Peninsula

At the heart of the South West is the majestic Killarney National Park and the introduction to our adventure. We hike along the Kerry Way in the region of the Black Valley. Our base is the beautiful town of Kenmare, nestled between mountain and ocean and recognized as a gourmet centre. 

The wild and rugged Beara Peninsula is named after Ireland’s oldest land goddess and runs south and west of Kenmare and holds some of the most scenic walking available in Ireland through an area rich in archaeology, particularly in Bronze Age sites, among them stone circles and tombs. 

Days 3 - 4 Ring of Kerry and Skellig Michael
The great peninsula of Uibh Ráthach (Iveragh) holds remote and hidden places. The lofty McGillycuddy Reeks dominate the interior overlooking intricate coastlines and islands with hikes along ancient ways and through holy landscapes, over wild beaches and onto Atlantic headlands at “the edge of the world”. 

Our base is the tiny fishing village of Portmagee and our launch point for the sacred rock-island of Sceilig Mhichil (Skelligs). These pointed peaks in the North Atlantic are homes to tens of thousands of sea-birds and the site of the world’s most spectacular hermitage.

Days 5 - 7 Dingle Peninsula
The Dingle Peninsula is the most northerly of the five finger-like promontories of the South West. It is a powerful place where almost ten thousand years of history is etched on a landscape described by National Geographic as “probably the most beautiful on Earth!” 

Gaelic culture thrives here and after hill, island and coastal walking you will hear some of the best traditional Irish music in the country! There will be opportunities to mingle in the great pubs of the region, meet local artisans and dine on the best seafood Ireland has to offer.
