Mountain & Hill Ranges in Ireland

The mountains and hills of Ireland attract thousands of walkers every weekend. While these areas can provide a challenge for the serious mountaineer, they also offer plenty of less-demanding options for the leisurely rambler.

Due to Ireland's "saucer-like" topography, the majority of its higher upland areas are to be found in the coastal counties, while the central region is typically comprised of low-lying agricultural land, bogs and lakes.
