There are a lot of "Guides" sprining up all over Ireland charging to take tourist on these walks, all of the walks in ireland across public areas are free and can be done alone or with companions, the charges of up to 35.00euro per person for some of the walks is a rip off, experienced walkers do not need to be guided or pay for these walks. You will want to welcome walkers to the country and not be sending them home thinking that they have to pay a guide to walk on  mountains or hills. Be careful and ask locals for advice and you will enjoy walking in Ireland for free, just a it was intended.. walk at your own pace, experience has taugh its the best way,
