Walking tours



There are many different walking routes on the island and there is always something new to see.

 There are three lighthouse walks, to the west light, the east light or the south lighthouse. These walks are well sign posted.

 There are some off road walks also namely at Roonivoolin and Ballyconaghan. The walk at Ballyconaghan does pass through sensitive habitats such as wetlands and dry heath, so it may not be sustainable if there were large numbers of walkers during the flowering season.

 We can provide guided walking tours to suit all levels of fitness. Outdoor and waterproof wear is essential and walking boots are always a must. Walking tours can be booked in conjunction with an overnight stay on Arkell House bed and breakfast or accommodation in one of the cottages.

 We can take you around many different parts of the island and at the same time share with you some of the island's colourful history.

 Call us or email us with your suggested dates, number in your party and we can provide you with a quote. We can provide a discount for larger numbers. We can also provide packed lunches so that your sandwiches are not squashed before you even arrive!

We will meet you at the ferry at the harbour, provide coffee and scones and the average tour lasts 3 hours. We will then arrange for the delivery of the lunch to a scenic spot on the island and after the tour is over you are free to explore further until the return ferry.

Or you can always stay the night. After all the exertion of the tour there is nothing better than having a long hot soak in our stylish bathrooms whilst enjoying a well earned glass of wine!.Contact us and we can provide you with a quote for an extended stay.

Packed lunches comprise of sandwiches, juice or water, coffee and a homemade pud!
