The tours are a fun way to walk your dog, in the company of other dog owners.  No matter what the weather our four legged friends need walked, so the tours will get you out and about.   The tours are not designed to be history lessons – they have been created as a light hearted, fun, friendly and informative activity, taking in the local dog friendly establishments in the area, meeting some of the locals, and enjoying food and drinks as we go.

Each tour will take in several dog friendly establishments where you will enjoy a warm welcome, and hear from the business owners and staff who just love our four legged friends. The walk is not strenuous, however a decent level of fitness is required in order to keep up with the group.

The weather in Northern Ireland is very unpredictable, but no matter what it brings the tours will go on!
