For 25 years Sean and Theresa Byrne have hosted Guided and Self-Guided Walking Holidays in the Dublin / Wicklow Mountains National Park, and beyond.
Each day of your walking holiday has been painstakingly developed over many years taking account of expectations of visitors who come here to experience nature at its very best, the dramatic Mountain scenery, Lakes, Rivers, Valleys, Moorland, stunning Landscapes and ancient Woodlands.
Based in Lough Dan House, a comfortable 4-star Farm Guesthouse in a remote rural setting, you can enjoy full-board accommodation, bed-breakfast, pack lunch and evening meals as well as transport from arrival at Dublin airport or other location to departure.
Sean and Theresa know the area and its history better than most. We take immense pleasure in sharing the our home and countryside with guests to ensure a Walking Holiday with us will exceed your wildest imagination.
