5 Fantastic Family Friendly Loop Walks in Ireland

There are some fantastic family friendly loop walks in Ireland. There is nothing more relaxing and enjoyable than heading off as a family on one of these exciting and informative adventure treks. It is a great way to get the kids out into the fresh air and to expose them to the natural beauty and wildlife that Ireland has in abundance.

A holiday in Ireland wouldn't be complete without a good trek in the countryside and there is no better way to enjoy the beautiful scenery and stunning surroundings than on one of Ireland’s many looped walks.

Loop walks start and finish in the same place. Ireland has a great selection of ones that last between 1 and 2 hours in length. This makes them an ideal choice for family walks. You can park your car in the happy knowledge that on the completion of you walk, your lift home will be there, ready and waiting! Or if you choose to stay in a Walkers Welcome B&B then you will be just a short distance away from your accommodation, as Walkers Welcome B&Bs are located close to the popular walking routes.
