Very much enjoyed our kayak tour on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Nathan was an ideal host. Polite, helpful, confident and very knowledgable on both the history and geology of the lake A little bit of an adventure and I would certainly recommend to any friends who want a 'safe' but challenging experience The highlight for me wasn't the visit to...

My husband and I loved our 2 1/2 hours sea kayaking in Glengarriff with Nathan. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history and natural features on our tour. He was also great at adapting the tour to our abilities. Wildlife was definitely the highlight as a group of 6-8 seals followed our party the whole way. Can't recommend highly... More

We did the mountain skills 1 course last weekend in the Caha's and it was one of the best things I've done for myself in ages. After years of hiking both here and abroad we finally decided to do the wise thing and get properly trained up. We just did the course and spent two days learning the many intricacies... More

I had a really fun weekend and learned so much from Nathan. I love hiking but would never have felt confident enough to go out alone or lead a group. MS 1 changed that. I'm looking forward to mountain skills 2!

I've been hiking for years and in August I came and completed mountain skills 1 to finally get some recognized qualifications! That weekend was excellent and this one was even better. A different guide on each day (Dave & Nathan) with tons of experience and love for the mountains. The night navigation was amazing and a big change from what... More

I am an avid rock climber but only climbed with friends who had much more experience so I never got to do all the exciting things like leading a climb and setting up an anchor to belay the seconder from above. I considered this course over a few years and finally rang Nathan and committed to the November 2016 course.... More

We did the 10 AM kayaking tour with Tomas and it was the perfect way to spend the morning in Killarney. The lake is beautiful and he brought us to a little island that had deer and remains of an old monastery. The whole tour took about 2 1/2 hours and was perfect.

I had been desperate to get stuck in to the Mountain Skills programme and managed to get on to the MS1 course run by Nathan in Killarney. I was not disappointed! Nathan leads with a calmness and intelligent prowess and is a veritable wealth of knowledge on the flora and fauna of the area. By the end of a fascinating... More
