You honestly cannot book a better guide for your MS1 course. Nathan is a patient, understanding teacher with an incredible breadth of local knowledge. Can't recommend the course enough!

I will preface this by saying that I have spent a considerable amount of time walking waymarked hiking and climbing routes around Ireland, and a bit of off trail hiking also. I wanted to cover MS1 to be able to safely and responsibly navigate to more remote/unmarked areas. I was a bit nervous before the course, I'd never done anything like it in the past. It was handily one of the most enjoyable and memorable experiences I have had out walking. All detail was covered in great detail, but in small increments and with more practice than theory - a huge boon to help it bed in. Nathan has a remarkable teaching ability, and a real passion for what he does. I was blessed with the others on my group, alert, intelligent and great conversationalists at the breaks! I came home an immediately planned my next solo walk. I cannot recommend the course enough.

Myself and a friend booked in with Nathan for a morning kayaking on Killarney Lakes. We went with our guide Josh and the experience was incredible, the highlight of my trip for sure! The scenery was breathtaking, we stopped on some islands and learned some of the history from Josh, who also had the answers to all of our questions about the area and wildlife, we even spotted herons and deer as we kayaked. Josh was extremely knowledgeable and clearly very passionate about the outdoors. We felt safe and confident even though it was my first time kayaking, the entire experience is one I will be doing again anytime I return to the area as it was so tranquil and beautiful. The price was brilliant for the quality of the experience we had, it was only 60 euro each for 3 hours and looking back I would have expected to pay more for such an amazing morning. A must-do, the groups are kept small and everyone was really helpful. Thank you Nathan and Josh!

Did sea kayaking with Outdoors Ireland in Glengarriff yesterday. Fantastic experience. In my mid 60s and haven’t kayaked for 50 years but guide / instructor Mark was brilliant and put me completely at ease. Beautiful location and we covered about 5k going out around Garinish Island and into the many little inlets that abound on this stretch of coast. Would highly recommend. 10/10 if the scale went that far.

Really great morning. Both instructors/guides were very helpful throughout. I myself can not swim and felt really safe kayaking with the guys. Can't recommend it enough. Looking forward to the next time.
