FITNESS LEVEL

  • You should have an average fitness level and mobility. Bring a walking stick or cane if you'd like.

  • You are able to go on walks along uneven surfaces, up hills, and, if needed,  carry your bags to your room. 

  • To get to some sites, walks can be 5 - 15 minutes and people take them at their own pace.

  • Lighthouse climbs are steep, winding and narrow

  • And if you're just not feeling up to it that day, you can always opt out. There is always a bench on which to sit and a view to be enjoyed

PACK LIGHT!

We recommend you bring one medium-sized suitcase (smaller is fine!) and a day bag (example: small back pack or purse). A medium-sized suitcase is about 28 in. (height) x 17 in. (width). You can keep the day bag with you on the mini-coach (as long as it fits under your seat) and your other suitcase will go in the back of the mini-coach which you can access during the day if needed.
  • You may sometimes need to carry your bags from the mini-coach into a guest house and possibly up steps. Many of these smaller local guest houses do not have elevators.

  • Remember, Ireland is a modern country. If you forget something, you can probably buy it there
