One of our biggest highlights from our trip to the beautiful Inisowen peninsula this week was the Malin Head Star Wars tour with the amazing Bren! Our kids are 12, 10 and 6 and he made the tour relevant to us all, from basking shark stories to showing us an Ewok lookalike - he even got a moody , tired little 6 year old into it with Star Wars light sabre action😆 This guys style is so easy and friendly and he really knows his stuff - fascinating to listen to while keeping it so interesting. The time flew by and the kids loved the Jedi cape dress up with light sabres on the walk - class ! Memories made . Book this !! You’ll never get a better opportunity to learn so much about this incredible part of Ireland with an decent sound tour guide !

I have been lucky to attend a number of training courses organised and faciltated by Bren, including Mountain Skills, Leave no Trace and Lowland Leaders. He is extremely knowledgeable and highly skilled. Brens technical ability is underlined by many years of practical experience, yet he is able to meet course participants wherever they are up to (even at beginner level) and clearly explain fundamentals with great patience and engagments. Donegal Climbing will always be my first port of call for future training needs. Excellent!

WOW we so totally loved the Star Wars tour with Bren. He is such a cool, kind and knowledgeable guy! The tour was so diverse, with a bit of history, legends, and star wars anecdotes which made it so special. We drove this far up North specifically to do this tour, and it was an absolute highlight of our trip. The scenery is truly breathtaking, and Bren adds so much flavour and meaning into wandering around. I can only recommend that you do this tour if you have the chance.

Without a doubt the very best part of our trip to Ireland was our hiking tour of Malin Head with Bren. My husband, kids (10 &12) and my mom all enjoyed learning the history of the area and the geology so many facts mixed with a bit of forklore from the region and seeing the beautiful area at Ireland’s most northernly point. He is a fantastic guide. I would highly recommend anyone visiting the area to book a tour with Donegal Climbing and I would love to book again next time and check out another place with him as a guide on my next visit. To say we were impressed would be an understatement!! Thank you so much Bren, it was wonderful to meet you and you really made our trip by guiding us through the most beautiful part of Ireland. Many thanks till next time! Slainte!!!

We went rock climbing at Malin Head...the whole family of 4 of us. We were given lots of relevant and interesting information about the area and the actual climbing experience was perfect for all of our mixed levels.
