Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a fantastic trip! The hike was well-organized (the app was great), and the accommodations were fabulous. Each inn we stayed at was meticulously clean, and our hosts could not have been nicer. The breakfast served at each inn were delicious and filling. This was our first time in Ireland, and the hike was the highlight of our trip.

We had plenty of information about the hike beforehand, and staff was always available to assist throughout the hike. They even managed to ensure that we had five days of sunny weather :-).

We did a modified self-guided Kerry Way hike with two days in Killarney before three days walking to Black Valley, Glencar and on to Glenbeigh. The company did a great job with communications, B&B bookings and itinerary. The hike was all we hoped for with dramatically different days of moss covered woods, open plains, and a walk down to the shore. September was ideal with comfortable temperatures and cloudless skies. The trail was almost unpopulated as were the accommodations.

We had a terrific experience this August (2022) exploring the Dingle peninsula using the very useful tools and services provided by IWHB. Ours was the so-called "Comfort Hike," meaning our daily walks were shortened via taxi rides through the first parts of each walk; for a pair of septuagenarians not in perfect shape, though, the Comfort Hike option was very appropriate. (Also the short taxi rides gave us more opportunities to interact with Dingle residents!) We found the geolocating app IWHB provided to be genuinely terrific, and it worked throughout our walks. (Some of the cue sheet details could have been edited or updated, but then I'm a retired English prof, perhaps overly critical.) We also had good cell service almost everywhere, but that has nothing to do with IWHB!

Communicating with the friendly people of IWHB was always quick and satisfactory; every one of the half dozen or so individuals we interacted with in person or by email from this company were on their toes. Excellent, careful attention to detail.

I'd also praise the advance information they sent out, which really helped us prepare properly for the week's adventure. (That includes the fitness training videos they made available!).

All the B&Bs we were placed in were satisfactory or better – we certainly slept well in each place! (Our B&B in Dingle town was extraordinary!) Each of the B&B owners was personable and helpful, and we were offered excellent breakfasts.

What a wonderful touring company!!! Excellent communication and follow-through, and helpful every step of the way.

We had underestimated our abilities to hike 10-12+ miles per day, and emailed Francis at Ireland Walk Hike after our first day. He immediately revised our whole itinerary, to where we could still hike and experience the incredible beauty of Ireland, but shorter and more manageable (for us) distances. He also recommended and arranged lovely activities for us during our extra days in Killarney, and even stopped by to check on us.

We so appreciate Francis and everyone at Ireland Walk Hike Bike - Five Stars indeed!!!

This ended up being our favorite activity in all of Ireland! Maurice was the most wonderful guide and lovely person over all. We could have hung out and talked with him for another 6 hours after the hike! He did a great job at capturing lots of photos and videos for us to show our friends back home. The hike was insanely beautiful. Would recommend 10/10!

Just got back form a great trip! Ireland Walk Hike and Bike is a service oriented touring company from the coordinator, Niamh, to our fantastic guide, Joe O'Donnell. They went out of their way on several occasions to assure we had the best walking tour of the Burren, Aran Island and Connemara imaginable. The B&B's were perfect.
Thank you to all!

This is our second time using Ireland Walk Bike Hike. We appreciate the great responses and thought that goes into planning each hike that we have done and tweaking it to our needs.
We hiked the Kerry Way and started in Killarney doing the self guided hikes. We were impressed with the app that uses GPS to make sure that you are on the right path. ( an upgrade from our last Wicklow Way hike in 2018) Along with the many signs that keep you on the right path, the app was a great accessory.
Since we went in March, there weren't many others on the trail and we did have some great weather.
The accommodations that were booked for us were excellent and we enjoyed all the places and breakfasts! The transportation was also fantastic from each place.
Our last day we did a guided hike with Maurice and we throughly enjoyed his conversation and patience and we were tired by the end of the week. He made the best of it and was a great end to our fantastic hiking week throughout the Kerry Way!

I also want to say another thanks to Maurice as he was a great help in planning our entire trip and checking in to make sure we were enjoying our trip. We are looking forward to another trip!! Thanks to IWBH for creating great itineraries and accommodations!

Trekked Wicklow Way 4 nights then traveled via train to Killarney and to trek Carrauntoohil via Coomloughra horseshoe and spent 3 more days trekking Kerry Way. Enjoyed working with IWHB to set it all up. Communication was easy and all arrangements were great. Trail notes, maps, info and interactive app made the self guided travel easy. Really enjoyed the guided trek with Maurice of Carrauntoohil via Coomloughra horseshoe. ( Note to others considering this - it makes for a long, strenuous day. Well worth it but challenging) Definitely consider IWHB if you are looking to have someone assist you with your travel arrangements. Highly recommend

I have nothing but good things to say about booking with Ireland Walk, Hike, Bike. A few details about the trip...It was my mom (60+ yrs), myself (38), and my 9 mo old daughter. We were there for 10 days and walked portions of "The Kerry Way" most of the days. I carried my daughter in a hiking backpack while my mom carried the food / snacks. Coordinating a trip with a nine month old in another country can be intimidating to state it lightly. We had cabs picking us up and dropping us to at the start/end of hikes which meant a carseat needed to be transferred. We needed a travel cot for her to sleep in and we needed flexibility in our days just in case she wasn't up for the hike that day and we needed to be done early. Thus, the reason for booking through Ireland Walk, Hike, Bike. I couldn't have been happier that we did this!

From the beginning, they had superb communication and custom built a route that allowed us to maximize what we were seeing each day, but still have some flexibility if needed. It was really nice to give them a budget and have them plan accordingly for hotels, transportation, etc. All of the lodging accommodations were phenomenal with breakfast included. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and well stocked, and my daughter's travel cot was ready to go at each location. The transportation to and from hikes was timely and each of our drivers were incredibly knowledgeable and we learned so much from them! No one ever made us feel like a "burden" with a carseat and so many bags full of baby stuff like diapers and formula. Everyone helped where they could and we never had any hiccups.

They reached out to us throughout the trip to ensure that all was going well and to check to see if we had any questions. We had one day that we needed to shorten and they accommodated that as well! Traveling with a little one and knowing that we were just a phone call away from assistance really provided me with a peace of mind that we would be taken care of throughout the trip!

We had the privilege to do a one-week hiking tour in the North of Ireland. It was fantastic! We can warmly recommend Irland Walk Hike Bike. Joe O’Donnell, our guide, was just perfect - thank you, Joe! We would love to come back for another tour with you.
