The Ballyhoura International Walking Festival isn’t just Ireland’s oldest walking festival – it’s one of the most popular too.
Now in its 24th year, the festival sees guides from the Ballyhoura Bears Walking Club leading a packed programme for all abilities – from the hardy hiker to gentle ramblers enjoying the company of local experts in the fields of heritage, archaeology, history, flora and fauna. Ballyhoura features 1,500km of National looped walks and waymarked ways, including the historic Ballyhoura Way.
Every year, new routes are chosen for the walking festival, attracting walkers from all over Ireland and international visitors from as far afield as South Africa, Germany, the Czech Republic, France and the UK.
This year will also feature 18 special walks suitable for all abilities and ages that will cover areas of special interest throughout the whole Ballyhoura region – these walks are real gems.
Families, friends, couples and singles alike will love the chance to put toe to trail and get out to see some stunning Irish countryside
