A message from Kieron

Thank you for visiting the Ireland Walking Guide website. Through the site, I hope to share the knowledge and experience I have gained through walking the Irish countryside since July 1997.

I have been a published outdoor writer and photographer since September 2009, and a member of the Outdoor Writers & Photographers Guild (OWPG) since May 2010. I am also the author of Ireland's County High Points -  A Walking Guide, published by The Collins Press in March 2012.

I hope you will find this website to be a useful and informative resource for walking and hiking  in Ireland. Thanks again for visiting, and feel free to contact me.
