Feast your eyes upon the most amazing scenery of wild and untouched landscapes, breathe in the crystal clear air and listen to that beautiful sound of silence from your vast surroundings at over 2500ft.

Standard hikes of the Comeragh Mountains include linear walks and Failte Ireland National Looped trails. However our hikes veer off the beaten track to allow us to experience off trail navigation and engage in mountain skills such as timing, pacing, feature recognition, compass work, and at The Irish Experience we like to add more to your mountain knowledge so we also include other topic areas such as folklore of the area, environmental awareness issues, flora & fauna, geology and much more.

It was my first real hiking experience! We booked last minute as we were staying in the the south east for the weekend and we were looking for something to do a little bit different! I seen the brochure in the Tourist information stand and just wanted to do this! The Irish Experience took us there spur of the moment right from our hotel in Waterford. I enjoyed it tremendously! At times, it was difficult (because I wasn’t used to hiking at all) but as our guide Graham told me, “no pain, no gain” and after overcoming the mild fatigue I could see what the “gain” was! The views were just spectacular!!! We set up camp for a little while to rest and Graham even made us Tea and Hot Chocolate for us with some delicious flapjacks, a lovely touch. I’ve been wanting to do it again ever since! I’ve been bugging boyfriend about it (lol), hopefully we will soon!
