Walking & Hiking Tours of Ireland
Hidden Ireland Tours emerged from between friends wandering sacred spaces in Ireland. From having grown up and been inspired by the powerful nature, culture – and magic around him in one of Ireland’s wildest places, founder Con Moriarty began whispering invitations to join him on walks, hikes and climbs.
Three decades later, the magic is still there and still shared and while today our company provides a range of less active opportunities to connect with Ireland – that this is best experienced on-foot remains a core truth.
Throughout the year – and throughout the island of Ireland, Con Moriarty and other guides of distinction create and guide personalized cultural walking and hiking trips quiet unlike any other, exploring places and insights few even know exist.
In conjunction with our own trips that are personalized and run at anytime to suit a family or small private group, Hidden Ireland Tours also works with a handful of select partners in providing a range of quality scheduled cultural hiking trips each year.
Of particular joy and pride to us is the relationship shared over 25 years with the outstanding Wilderness Travel based in Berkeley, California and for whom, Con Moriarty and Ann Curran will co-lead a number of very special trips in 2016; The Spirit of Ireland and The Wild Atlantic Way (see below)
