Had an amazing day climbing with Ian. I had no experience climbing but felt completely safe during my adventure and can be as challenging as you want to make it. I cycled the length of Ireland and this was probably my best experience of the entire trip.

Went for a drive out on the head........and what a drive. Short but spectacular and very quiet when we visited. We never say another person. Try to get there early as it could , with very little traffic get very congested. ..narrow road and few pull in spots

We had a fantastic and truly unique day. Iain was a great guide, reassuringly calm during the rock climbing as well as giving us a mini history of the area. What an amazing experience to stand on top of a sea stack that very few have stood on before, surrounded by the most incredible scenery. This has to be one... More

I'm not an experienced climber at all, only one other time outdoors, but I wanted to do a sea stack. Iain customized a climbing adventure that suited what I wanted with my abilities on a day that fit with my holiday. He is very personable and on our way to the site was a great guide to Ireland and the... More

Iain organised an incredible trip for a group of 9 of us to traverse out to a sea stack before abseiling down and climbing back up. The scenery was absolutely stunning and Iain and his team were both fun and reassuring when it got a bit scary! Everyone in our group loved it and felt exhilarated to have completed the... More

I set up a day of climbing for my boyfriend's birthday as part of our longer trip to Ireland. Iain went out of his way to accommodate us and we had a great day out hiking and climbing - the icing on the cake was the album of photos from the day. I can't say enough about how much we... More

Iain took me on an awesome all day trip to climb a remote sea stack in the southwest of Donegal. It was a proper adventure, with great moderate-class climbing up 4 exposed pitches, a short paddle from shore, and tricky scrambling and rappelling to reach the shore in the first place. Fantastic views and a lot of fun!

I found Iain through a website and a google search. Iain was incredibly easy to contact via email and it was very easy to arrange the trip with him. We stayed in his guest house and he transported us to the site. All gear was included in the price. He made sure the entire trip was very safe and chose... More

I have climbed on a number of occasions with Iain in both winter and summer conditions. As a surprise for my daughters 9th birthday I took her out on a days rock climbing with Iain.

I recently met Iain as he was my trainer for a mountaineering course. Before the day was over i had already decided that I would be back for more. I have since been back twice, and I will be back again. Iain has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the area of rock climbing and mountaineering and I have... More
