Walking Boots Tours, Exploring the heart & sole of Ireland. Carefully choosen hiking, walking& special interest vacations tours throughout Ireland.
Hello there. Welcome to Walking Boots Tours. My name is Maeve Kelly.
What do I offer?
I offer a tour with a difference, the chance to see Ireland accompanied by a passionate hiker – ME. Walking Boots Tours offer a personalised range of walking holidays in Ireland. Whether it’s in Connemara, on the Dingle Peninsula or in my native Donegal; I will be your guide. My friends sometimes join my tours. With their expertise in archaeology, ornithology and local history; they add a new dimension to our walks. My tour groups range in size from a minimum of four people to a maximum of 14. We do not always follow a marked trail. Often we are the only walkers on the route. And all our hikes are chosen to suit someone with a good level of fitness.
This is no ordinary walking holiday. Thanks to my background in horticulture and archaeology and my love of the outdoors, Walking Boots Tours offers you a whole lot more.

What happens on Walking Boots Tours?
A typical day’s hike takes four to five hours. The itineraries have been carefully planned and are based on my own favourite walks. All are set in stunning scenery: magical islands, breath-taking mountains and ancient historical sites.
I have handpicked the guesthouses we stay in. They are clean and comfortable, with a truly homely atmosphere. Each has its own charm and is testimony to a unique brand of Irish hospitality.
Walkers relax while on the trail at Gleninchquin near Kenmare, Co. Kerry!
