Thinking about a long distance hike in Ireland?
Need a packing list for the Ireland Way?
For many people, taking a long distance hike is a rarity. For this reason, it’s common to overpack or take unnecessary items on that first trip.
I know this happened when I hiked the Pacific Crest Trail last year.
In this article, I wanted to lay out a packing list for the Ireland Way or any long distance trail in Ireland. However, please only take this post as a guideline, for there are certain items not on this Ireland Way packing list you might want or need.
