Coronavirus Statement

The spread of COVID-19 is naturally of concern for Joyce’s Ireland Hiking Tours customers. I understand that the uncertainty regarding travel is frustrating, and I want to assure you that I am monitoring the issue carefully.

The wellbeing and holiday enjoyment of my guests is my priority. Joyce’s Ireland Hiking Tours and all guides and suppliers are committed to high hygiene and health standards.

Please note that the travel restrictions in the announcement made by the United States on March 12th and 14th now apply to the United Kingdom and Ireland.

As a travel company with trips in 5 different countries, we are prepared for adverse and unexpected situations. We prioritise the security and safety of our guests and employees above all else.

April, May, June and July 2020 tours have been postponed to 2021 as follows:-

“England’s Lake District” April 20th to 28th 2021

 “Highlands and Islands of Scotland” April 30th to May 9th 2021

“Into the West” May 20th to 25th 2021

“Hidden Ireland North” June 1st to 7th 2021

“Chamonix and the Alps” (Private Tour) July 24th to July 30th

“Hidden Ireland South” which was to take place August 11th to 19th has now been postponed to 2021 for the same dates but as a different tour: “Spectacular South West and East”

We intend to run all of our other trips from September 1st 2020 as planned, and believe this is the best response to this developing situation. We want to presume that the virus will decrease significantly in the next month or two. We are closely monitoring information sources such as the World Health Organization, UK, Ireland, and France Government information.

As soon as the situation changes, I will get in touch with guests if any scheduled tours are likely to be impacted, or as we receive any relevant news. I remain optimistic that the situation will stabilise soon.

I look forward to welcoming you on your tour, if not this year, then in 2021

All the best
