It was a very nice guided walk in the national park. He took me to some great places with beautiful views of the mountains. Would never have known about these places if it wasn't for him, so thank you so much! And ofcorse the dog Rua, was such a nice and good dog that kept us company aswell.

Let me start by saying that I have been planning to Climb Carauntoohil (highest mountain in Ireland) for a couple of years now, in fact I planned my entire trip around it. I started contacting Richard weeks ahead of my trip; the responses were slow and unfortunately not very detailed, but I stuck with that them thinking that all would... More

I am very sorry that William didn't achieve his ambition to climb Corrán Tuathail Irelands highest mountain. I did agree to take him up there but on that weekend I was away in Dublin four hours drive away at a family funeral. I tried very hard to get a replacement guide, and another guiding company agreed to take him. I... More

The tour with Richard was plain awesome. His second guide Rua knew well to entertain us between the interesting and enlightening stories about the mythologic places Richard showed us. We saw a lot of wildlife in the National Park bordering Killarney, of which the deer bathing in the lake were the most awesome. With his charms, he even made a... More

Today we met Richard promptly at 11 AM at the designated spot and started our walk with a group of 6 adults (1 Thai, 5 Dutch including our 10 yo boy). Richard took us through Killarney National Park, showed us some nice tracks and spectacular views, and adapted the route on the go according to the group's preferences.

My first time in Killarney national park, I decided to go with the guided walk - turned out very nice. Richard is very friendly and he knows the local walking paths very well. Rua is very cute. Though some paths can be a bit tough and making you feel like hiking (depend on the weather as well), the views are... More

While walking up and down hill thought unique scenery and along lakes and rivers you can see red deer as well as local plants. Thanks to Richard and Rua you get to know paths and places you'd never be able to find on your own. I highly recommend the tour for everybody who loves adventures and enjoys a good walk... More

A nice way to experience the stunning scenic beauty of Killarney National Park. Going with Richard and Rua has the advantage of saving you loads of time trying to find those off-the-beaten-path places you really want to see. So, don't hesitate to go, you won't regret it. Richard was also nice enough to make several excellent suggestions for other walks... More

You could walk around this rather large area on your own but Richard and Rua make it feel more like a stroll amongst the locals. The advantage of having a guide is that you focus on what is around you as opposed to how you are going to find your way out of the park! The deers were absolutely beautiful... More

What a wonderful way to experience nature in Killarney. My wife and I booked a walk with Richard(and his Irish Setter Rua) through the Killarney National Park and we were enthralled by the experience. Richard is incredibly knowledgeable and delightful and he guided us through areas of the park which clearly were "the road less traveled". We got to experience... More
