Overview

Guided walks in Killarney National Park with a local guide who was born, and raised just across the road from it. I like to show people the hidden places off the beaten path along the lake shore with great views of the mountains. See wildlife like our red, and sika deer or even climb Irelands highest mountain. Rua my friendly red setter likes to come along on many of the walks. Irish language friendly I also speak some Spanish, and a little Italian.

Richard managed to maintain our 19 teenagers' attention throughout the afternoon, introducing them to the red deer, the cinnabar moth and the dancing rock! We had a beautiful glimpse of irish nature and Richard made us feel both comfortable and sporty! We hope to meet...More
