Safety Tips For Hill Walking Tours in Ireland
Before you go hiking in Kerry, it is important to think of a few
important things to ensure you come back safe and sound. Here are my
hiking safety tips for you:
plan your trip in advance and make sure it is right for your fitness level and experience
tell someone where you are going and when you are planning to be back
Your walking tours in Ireland will bring you across farmland with
livestock. To keep the local farmers happy and pay respect to them
allowing you to cross their land remember to always close gates properly
behind you. Farmers get very angry if their sheep or cows escape.
Dogs are not permitted on most walks because of livestock.
Never leave any rubbish behind. Bring everything back with you and keep the landscape clean.
Don't throw stones down hills or mountains. They could injure other people or livestock.
Keep a safe distance to cows...they could turn out to be a bull...
Don't light fires on the mountains. They can get out of control and set the grass on fire in dry weather.
Ask for permission before you put up a tent somewhere.
