The Coast to Coast walk through Ireland, from Dublin to the Atlantic coast, finishing in Port Magee, passes through glorious mountain and river country and offers an opportunity to discover the heart of the Emerald Isle. The walk comprises several linked waymarked routes to provide a continuous 387 mile long route across Ireland. Starting from Dublin, the routes used are the Wicklow Way, South Leinster Way, East Munster Way, Blackwater Way and the Kerry Way. So if you walk this entire route you will have completed six long distance paths! 


It is the longest challenge in this series, but with no time limit on completion of all of our challenges, it is available and doable by everyone.


So walk, run, cycle, row or complete any other distance based activity to cover the 387 miles. Download our App and track your progress along the way.
