Guided Coastal Walks with our Local Historians & Guides

The Dunmore East Walking Weekend walks are in the easy to medium range and are very suitable for walkers without any great level of fitness who enjoy a moderate challenge with no steep climbing.

The village of Dunmore East will be pleased to welcome you and offers the finest hospitality.

Dunmore East is grateful to the local landowners who allow walkers to cross their land. This gives the walks a unique aspect on our countryside and coast.
