Top class activity to do in a group! Our guides were brilliant only for them! The climb itself was very though at times but that’s all forgotten about once you see the wonderful views from the top 😊

A walk onto the MacGillyCuddy's reeks is a fantastic experience. Using Kerry Climbing was well worth it, since none of us had experience in hiking . The guide was very proficient and at the same time very entertaining. It was a pleasure walking with him....More
