His knowledge of the area was what brought us to the areas he showed us, and his warm and congenial company made the walk seem like a stroll with... More

Booking this walk with Paul Phelan was the highlight of our holiday in Ireland. Paul is a great guide, and he gave us loads of interesting information about geology and history of the area and Ireland as a whole. Kids (ages 13 and 15) enjoyed it as well and it was well suited for all of us. Doing this walk... More

Paul knows his onions and knows his territory. We had a cracking day. Mixture of coast walk in the morning and a wee hill in the afternoon. Sun, mist, rain - Ireland at its best Good man you!!

We had a beautiful family hike with Paul guiding us along the ridge and up a mountain. The sea was the dominant feature in our walk and offered majestic views at all times. Paul gave us a lot of insight into the natural geology of the place, its history and the customs of the people. We would strongly suggest a... More

Paul was a great guide. He was patient and knowledgeable with our family of five. An experience we won't forget! If you want to really see Ireland, and enjoy nature,..this is a wonderful thing to do.

This was a very good walk. (same as Miroslav M) The day was nice with temperate weather. Paul was very good at highlighting the safety aspects. The walk was from 11 in the morning to 4 in afternoon. It was mostly of the trail, bog moorland type. I would definitely recommend and I would like to have another walk with... More

My wife, son and I vacationed in Connemara in June. Paul Phelan of Walk Connemara (www.walkconnemara.com) led us on four hikes (three in the Twelve Bens and one on the island of Inishbofin. Paul was great; it was like hiking with an old friend. He did more than just guide us; he taught us about the local culture, history and... More

He guided us up and down the hill and made of that day one of the best memories of our Irish stay. All along the way to the top and down the hill he told us... More

It was a beautiful morning, the kind hikers’ dream of for walking in the mountains, but It was with a certain level trepidation that I/we set out to walk the Maumturk mountains in Connemara.
