My wife and I climbed Carrauntoohil with Richard on a stunning, clear day between Christmas and the New Year. It had snowed the previous days, but we were well prepared and it make the whole experience seem like a walk in the Alps! Richard was great - he met us at a pre-arranged location, drove us to the start of... More

I am a travel organizer having brought over 16 groups to Ireland since 1999. Killarney and southwest kerry and Cork by far offer some of the best walking and hiking options. Last year I had a group tour based in Killarney for a week. I had met Richard in advance of the group visit and enjoyed walking with a true... More

On November 9th I organised a trek up Carrauntoohil for a fundraiser & we had Richard as our guide along with Niall. There were 28 of us on Day. I have to say Richard was brilliant full of chat and he made sure each person was up the mountain ahead of him and down before him safely. It was safety... More

I had come to Kerry for a week from Galway and thought it would be nice to get a tour from a local. It was a great idea and Richard showed me places that I wouldn't have seen on my own. We first started walking through the beautiful national park, where I learnt about the history of Killarney and then... More

Yesterday I walked with guide Richard and his dog Rua through the awesome nature of Killarney National Park which you would not have experienced without a guide as you would only have lost your way on your own. Rua is a real photo model as she is cute and photogenic smiling into the camera. You have only to say:"Photo" Then... More

DISCLAIMER: This is a long review, written by an uber planner/type A person in an effort to help orient others of similar disposition to a day with Richard. :) We pre-booked a hike up Carrantuohill with Richard about a month prior to our travels to Ireland, and we found him to be promptly responsive and great about reminders before our...

We thought it would be nice to go for a guided walk through the Killarney National Park and learn about the region and nature of Ireland well what a disappointment. Don't bother, we should have just walked ourselves. Firstly at 11.10 when no one had turned up to the designated meeting point we thought O well we will leave, then... More

Where do I start..... From my first correspondence with Richard, his efficient and pleasant communication was great. I organised a guided trek for a group of 11 and I was instantly impressed with Richard because he immediately put safety first informing me that we would need two guides for such a large group and I never felt that money was...

After our day walk with Richard my husband said, "Richard is truly the highlight of our trip." I felt like we had everything Ireland embodies in this knowledgable, fun loving, energetic and kind man. He truly enriched our trip in a way it never would have been otherwise. Anyone who does not take a walk with Richard is greatly missing... More
