Go raibh mile maith agaibh ( thank you) Amy, Linda, Rec and Dave for walking with Rua and I. The weather was nice, and the wildlife showed up just a pity that the local in question didn't give us a song. If you twisted his arm I am sure he would have sung the Galway Shawl for us. I wish... More

Thanks Ann and Ken for your lovely review we were lucky to have such lovely sunny weather. This enabled us to stay away from the beaten path for most of the walk, and you both seemed to enjoy this part as we saw plenty of wildlife. The two hours just flies I always enjoy it myself very much. Hopefully you... More

Had a fantastic walk this afternoon. It ended up just being me, Richard and Rua but it was perfect. Richard took my preferences into account and we had a bit of an adventure exploring the National Park. He also gave me top survival tips for if I ever get lost in the forest! Would definitely recommend this tour to other... More

I am delighted Emma that you enjoyed our two hour walk in the Ross Castle area, and we had a nice dry day for our off the beaten path hike. I think the wild garlic, and bluebells add to the scene very much. Must put up one of the pics I took perhaps the one where the fairies live. Slán... More

I went on one of the walks in Sept. with two other women, Richard, and Richard's soulful, sweet, red setter, Rua. Rua impressed me as she showed us the way and sat quietly watching three deer by water's edge. We took in a lot of beauty, which I expected, but I also got a few surprises: berries and crab apples...

Thank you Richard for the very interesting guide through the Killarney national park on St.Patrick´s day. Although it was raining heavily and Richard already had a busy day, he took his time to show me parts of the national park, you wouldn`t find as a tourist. It was great and I enjoyed it a lot!
