About Extreme Ireland


We're delighted to welcome you to Extreme Ireland; the gateway for a journey that you will never forget.
Extreme Ireland was founded by Keith McDonnell, an accomplished mountaineer and adventurer.
Extreme Ireland is an adventure for everyone on our tours, including our guides.
Our guides are hand-picked, 100% Irish, all with a sense of adventure and who will dazzle you with their knowledge of Ireland, from the history, topography, even down to the lyrics of Irish ballads.
All the guides are professionally trained, safety being the prime objective. All our guides have first-aid skills and navigation skills.
"You will never feel safer than when you are in the arms of an Irish man"
Our tours offer a unique mix of hiking, with a tour of Ireland that will give you all the information you can never get out of a book. 
Going on your holiday's means having a good time. You want to forget about your everyday life, and let someone else take that responsibility. That is what we are about. The minute you jump on our bus, forget about your work, forget about your troubles. Welcome to your new life!
Having the craic is a term we use in Ireland for saying that we are having a good time. Craic is the Gaelic word of fun. One of many that you will learn. By the way, I hope your linguistic skills are good because I will expect everyone to be able to order a pint in Gaelic by the end of the trip and say "Póg mo thóin" in a way someone won't find offensive:
Envision a journey that takes you far from the demands of daily life and into a realm of pure beauty, enveloped in the sights, the sounds, the scents of the natural world. Places where the spirit soars and the soul regains its balance.
Travel with us and experience the gifts of nature in the best possible way: on foot, a vantage point that allows an unmatched intimacy with the earth. From the smallest, most delicate wildflower to the grandeur of a mountain vista, immerse yourself in the beauty that surrounds you at every turn. Trails that wind through deep forest; an endless expanse of beach, where the music of the tide accompanies your every step. The charm of the changing seasons, brilliant foliage, fresh-fallen snow that glimmers, jewel-like, under a full moon. Exotic locales where dazzling flora and fauna await discovery.
We offer rich vacation experiences designed for inquisitive travellers who want to see the world in a different way. Our unique journeys combine challenge and adventure with the finest creature comforts: at the end of each day, you'll rest at charming, cosy inns and enjoy excellent cuisine shared with good company.
Custom walking and hiking vacations are becoming increasingly popular, and we're pleased to offer a range of options for 2011. Guided trips for 2 or for 50 - let us help you design your unique journey with a customized itinerary. Or you can choose to reserve an existing adventure for groups of ten or more, for your private enjoyment. These vacations are ideal for groups - families and friends, colleagues - a wonderful way to bring people together for an unforgettable vacation experience.
Wherever you choose to travel with us, you know you'll be travelling responsibly. We are passionate about nature and dedicated to environmental preservation, and those ideals are reflected in everything we do. No-trace hiking is always practiced, and all of our journeys are designed and carried out with scrupulous attention to conserving resources and protecting the environment. 


Extreme Ireland Adventures offer a variety of walking tours, soft adventure tours, day tours, adventure courses and international adventures. We are a young company passionate about Ireland and its many secrets.

Questions & Answers

  • Is transport included?

    Transport is inclusive in our fully packaged tours - you will be carried by minibus from your arrival at Dublin until your departure. On long trips, we make several stops for refreshments.
  • What's Involved in a Typical Day?

    08.30 Breakfast 09.30 Leave Accommodation 10.00 Start Walking 11.00 Tea/Coffee Break 13.00 Lunch Break 17.00 Return to Guesthouse 19.00 Evening Meal 20.30 Briefing for the Next Walk 21.00 Entertainment will be provided almost every night with plenty of 'craic' and traditional music in the local pubs.
  • Who goes on your adventures?

    Our guests come from all parts of the world. The average age of our guests is between 20 and 45. Females hold a slight majority over the male. However, saying this, we have had people who were over 70 years of age and enjoyed their trip tremendously as well! We gear our walks towards each particular group so don't be worried about the level of walks that we do. We go as slow as the slowest member of the group. We make sure everyone can walk and talk when they are out and about. Regardless of age or country of origin, all of our guests enjoy walking, the great outdoors and are curious about the natural and human history of the areas they are visiting.
  • What kind of exercise should I do to prepare for this trip?

    Any kind of aerobic exercise is a good idea. Walking is the best preparation, particularly up hills and stairs.
  • I've never been on a walking trip before, can I do this?

    A walking vacation is pleasurable if you are overall physically fit, enjoy the outdoors and are able to hike 6-10 miles a day with some inclines. We don't hold contests - you set the pace. We have choices almost every day that include an easier or more challenging walk. You may also decide to take a day off and explore on your own.
