An excellent walking holiday where we often imagined ourselves in a fairy tale landscape. The walking routes took us past waterfalls, narrow tracks in the woods, quiet country roads and walks along the beautiful Causeway coast. We highly recommend visiting Rathlin Island.
While hiking, you meet very few people along the route, which is nice. The villages where we stayed were buzzing and busier on the coast. The accommodation was excellent with hospitable hosts that were always willing to advise on the best places to eat etc.
In Ballintoy there was a live performance when stayed there which interfered with our sleep, but we booked an extra night to visit Belfast which was a great end to our Holiday.

As a couple we enjoyed a beautiful walking holiday this summer organised by Cliff Wayenberg of Walking Holiday Ireland. The six days of walking in Dundalk area, Carlingford and the Mourne Mountains were a good combination of different types of scenery, from easy walking to steep climbings. Walking distances each day a bit longer and a bit more difficult, giving it a nice challenge every day. B&B’s located in towns with lots to see and to do in the evening, and all with very enthousiastic hosts, willing to fulfill all wishes. We stayed two nights in each B&B, which gives good opportunity to learn more about a city and the B&B
In summary: Very well organized, well balanced and beautiful holiday!

We booked our walking holiday (group 8 people) through Cliff from Walking Ireland for August 2015. The whole schedule was changed for our group.We included Derry. When we arrived at Belfast Airport the taxibus was outside waiting for us. All the B&B’s were absolutely fabulous. Our luggage was transported for us so all we had to do was walk. We loved the routes, the views and the people. Very friendly and helpful. Even the weather was great. Don’t know if Cliff had anything to do with that.

With 15 nordicwalkers we arrived at the Ballymascanlon Hotel near Dundalk, a very good Hotel in the middle of a Golf course. The whole week we were transferred in a little bus with a private chauffeur. We walked four times (15 – 20 km),with and without Cliff, in the Cooley and Mourne Mountains in Ireland and North-Ireland. One evening we met the real Irish musicians. And we eat in a real Irish steakrestaurant, The last day we visit Dublin, where we stayed in the middle of the town, very nice. All was very good organised bij Cliff
