Overview

Footfalls Walking Holidays was founded in 1994 by Christopher and Teresa Stacey. We wanted to share our love and interest in the great outdoors with others so we started guiding individuals and groups in the Wicklow Mountains. Before long we were getting requests from our customers to see more of Ireland than just Wicklow and also do self-guided tours. Today we have expanded to where we are offering guided and self-guided tours to almost every corner of Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the Lake District. Despite out growth almost all of our tours are guided by us, Christopher and Teresa, to guarantee that personal touch.

We looked high and low, but on our five day wander along Ireland’s Wicklow Way we failed to find any little folk dressed in green. We did, however find some of the friendliest people on the planet.

How strenuous are the hikes on the Dingle Way self-guided tour? I'd consider myself a semi-experienced hiker--no multi-day trekking or mountaineering, but I've done day hikes 12 miles long in mountainous terrain. However, I've never done this type of hiking on three or more consecutive days. What's the weather like around the end of May? I'm seeing averages in the 50s/60s with rain. Does this sound accurate?
