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

Richard's friendliness and in-depth knowledge of the area make this walk a very nice way to see part of Killarney National Park.

Walking in the Killarney National Park with Richard and Rua has been an unforgettable experience. We spent over 2 and a half hour walking and talking with the other people in the group and Richard guiding us through plants, flowers and animals. I, and my husband, will always remember this tour. Thanks Richard for having shared with us what you... More

First, it's important for us to note that this review is for Richard Clancy as a mountain guide for Carrantuohill, and we did not go on his Nature Walk. We were staying in Killarney for two days and really wanted to hike Carrantuohill, since it's the highest mountain in Ireland. After doing research on the mountain and not having a... More

I booked the walk through O'Connor travels though I came to know from others in the group that you can book directly or can even just show up at 11 am near the cathedral. At the start of the walk, I was a bit disappointed because, being from the tropics, I had expected extensive introductions to the (unfamiliar) local flora.... More

Richard and Rua were very good guides, knew the area well, and were very helpful. Richard had lots of suggestions for things to do and see in the park and is a very useful contact to have for anyone spending time in Killarney.
