Valerie O’Sullivan nominated the day on Carrauntoohil on which the summit cross was re-instated as her favourite walk of 2014. What a day it turned out to be as a wonderful cloud inversion left the summit of Carrauntoohil and the surrounding peaks standling like islands above the clouds.

Thanks to Christopher from Footfalls Walking Holidays for sharing the details of his favourite walk of 2014 with us. In Christopher’s own words, it was a tough decision but the vote goes to the Antrim Causeway Coast.

Christopher told us that ‘it is a beautiful part of the world and the trail from the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge to the Giants Causeway has got to be one of the most spectacular walks in Europe’. High praise indeed!

Check out these pictures that Christopher took on his walk..

One of our favourite walks was Croagh Patrick, a walk we undertook for our Iconic Mountain series. Having heard reports of over-crowding, we hadn’t expected the social journey that climbing the mountain became. It was a walk spent in conversation with strangers each on their own unique journey up the slopes of Ireland’s most famous mountain.

Thanks to Russell Mills for submitting details of a glorious week in the kingdom of Kerry…..

The highlight of my year in Ireland would have been a wonderful week in late June down in Kerry. A full week of glorious sunshine and soaring temperatures. Camping at Cronins Yard, my visit was full of memorable days which included Howling ridge and Cruach Mhor and the Big Gun. But I would choose the Coomloughra Horseshoe as my special day. The pic shows Beenkeragh ridge and Carrauntoohil.
