Wolfhound Activities – Hiking and Active tours of Ireland

Hike through history, stroll back centuries, wander the wilds

Why go Wolfhound?

A Wolfhound Adventure Tour is a relaxed paced, multi-activity adventure tour of Ireland for all age groups. Our adventures run year-round and cater for anyone who wants to discover Ireland's hidden secrets in a fun and adventurous way.

Wolfhound leaves the well trodden path and explores more of Ireland's quaint towns, hidden valleys and rugged wilderness.

Small Groups

Our small group sizes (max 16) mean that you have more time to explore more of Ireland at your pace.

Hikes 'n History

Every day of your Wolfhound Adventure will feature a mix of hikes, wildlife and history. We have a flexible fast-changing itinerary so you are free to explore more each day when you feel like it. 

But there's so much more! With Wolfhound you'll be guided on wonderful wilderness hikes into Ireland's past ... to ancient stone circlescastles and ruined ringforts; to world-heritage islands, monasteries, waterfalls and deserted beaches.


There's also the chance for you to try out new and fun activities, from kayaking with wild seals, to relaxing in a warm Atlantic sea weed bath, from learning to surf a wave to horse-riding with glistening white sands under hoof.


Exploring Ireland's history and heritage takes us also into the realm of Ireland's fantastically rich flora and fauna. From the everyday to the out of this world. From the vibrant Summer wildflowers and insects, to the gorgeous tapestry of changing leaves and purple heathers of the Autumn. From pods of foraging dolphins to the occasional breaching humpback. From the ancient herd of protected Red Deer to the soaring white-tailed and golden eagles. From our native red squirrelpine marten and Irish Mountain hare to hovering kestrels and diving peregrines. On a Wolfhound trip we never know what lies in store as we depart on our adventures but there are always surprises. Catch a glimpse of an Irish stoat or get up close and personal with the puffins and gannets off our West Coast. For birders, there's always the chance of spotting a migrating hoopoe or osprey (no guarantees on this one!)

Superb Accommodation

Each night on a Wolfhound Adventure you'll stay in the finest B+B accommodation we could find. After a great day's adventuring you'll rest your head in cosy surroundings after exploring more of Ireland's local culture, her traditional pubs, her music and her tasty cuisine from fresh fish to locally farmed lamb.

Each day of your adventure on a Wolfhound tour is tailor made to your likes, dislikes and abilities. If you've had enough of hiking and wandering, we'll spend time exploring more of Ireland's local crafts and art. We can stop off to trace family history, indulge in some retail therapy in local markets, or simply sit on a stone wall and watch the world go by. After all with Wolfhound ... it's your adventure.


On a Wolfhound trip you'll be immersed in the stories, myths, music, legends and landscape of Ireland. But we know it's important for you to keep in touch with home. So Wolfhound provides you with free Wifi on board the Wolfmobile (or wolf-fi if you will) so that in between your hikes etc you can Tweet, Facebook or let the world know that you've seen the fairies. All of the accommodation we use also have Wifi access which is usually free too, so you can blog in the evenings if that's your thing.

Movie Locations in Ireland

In recent years Ireland has been chosen as the location for some iconic scenes from famous movies. If you're a movie buff it's possible to visit some of these en route. To name but a few - Ryan's Daughter, The Field, Leap Year, Far and Away, Braveheart, The Quiet Man and of course the most recent blockbuster to visit our shores from a galaxy far far away. Star Wars episode VII and episode VIII filmed on location in Ireland in 2014, 2015 and 2016. (Skellig Michael and Dingle - 6 Day Southwest trip). On the Northern trip we'll also be hitting up some of the Game of Thrones locations if you're a fan.
