    The Bottom Line

    The Bottom Line

    Final verdict: this trip was great and 100% changed my mind about guided tours. I was nervous signing up for a guided tour as I don't love the idea of traveling in a large group, but I knew hiking in unfamiliar terrain without a guide wouldn't be the relaxing vacation I was hoping for. The small group size is key. Wilderness Ireland proves that tour travel can be done well and relatively affordably. This trip was absolutely a splurge for us, but when I looked at comparable companies Wilderness Ireland's pricing was the best far and away. We would never have been able to afford many of the other companies comparable packages, and are truly grateful to Wilderness Ireland for offering trips of this quality at this price point. We will absolutely be returning to Wilderness Ireland to explore more of the country when we are able to, the value and level of service they provide is absolutely worth the price in my opinion. Thank you to Liam and the whole Wilderness Ireland team!
