I booked a 3 day hiking experience with Terra Firma for the Newport & Achill area. From the start there was a warm welcome & encouragement to join. The hikes were well designed with insider knowledge of the best routes for variation & the terrain conditions. Each hike had many wonderful vistas to delight the senses. Our guides Ged & Georgina were experts in pointing out the local flora & fauna which added a depth of appreciation for the natural habitats we were hiking through. Their hospitality, service, local knowledge, expertise, story telling, folklore, history & baked goodies were excellent. I would highly recommend Terra Firma & look forward to joining them again soon!

Well, what a fantastic treat! Dan, Ged and Georgia were great fun, entertaining us along the way with lots of fables, fairies and flora. My 6 and 7 year olds especially liked seeing the castle and learning about the adventures of their great, great, great, great....grandmammy, Grace O’Malley, oh, and stumbling upon a real-life Leprechaun! They had a terrific time, as did we all. Thanks very much guys for a fantastic time!

We did the Bangor trail last Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was pretty tough going for the last five k and Georgia was extremely helpful with motivation and m and m's. I'd highly recommend the guys to do this as it's a great achievement. Geds flapjacks were top not notch also. Thanks for a great day folks, Philip and Louise
