Hiking Ballyhoura

Group travel specialist South Quay Travel & Leisure has published a programme of new holidays in Ireland, from Ulster to Munster.

The programme covers all areas of touring, both in terms of interest and geography, with suggestions for groups seeking everything from outdoor activities to luxurious retreats.

Where can groups explore?

The programme explores each of the four Irish provinces, from Ulster’s geology to country life in Connaught, Munster’s sporting heritage and the interiors of Leinster.

It also offers plenty of scope for special interest groups, as wildlife enthusiasts can enjoy a whale-watching experience, or ‘foodie’ groups can go on a taste trail of the local dried seaweed dish of ‘dillisk’.

For those in search of active pursuits, South Quay Travel & Leisure suggests ideas such as midnight kayaking, big-wave surfing or clambering along the coast.

A one-day hiking break on the western coast, taking in the heights of St Patrick’s pilgrim mountain, is also available, along with guided valley hikes or even gold-panning activities.

The group travel specialist also offers suggestions for groups looking for short breaks or relaxing retreats in places such as Donegal, Kinsale or Ashford Castle.

In addition, the new collection of holidays features Irish landscape film locations, with Game of Thrones (GoT) and Star Wars-themed tours, including meeting the GoT direwolves in castle grounds or rambleing on the rocky outcrops of the Skellig Islands – a feature in the upcoming Star Wars movie.
