Completed mountain skills and navigation 1 and found it very useful, engaging and well run. Learned a lot and would feel more confident heading out now. Piaras was very knowledgeable about the area,landscape and history which added to the experience.

From the start of meeting Piaris and the fellow hikers at Cronin's Yard, I knew this would be a good day. A walk straight up the valley towards Carrauntoohil, in beautiful weather laid out the challenge in front of us, the highest peak in Ireland. We kept a brisk pace as we ascended up and up to Brother O'Shea's Gully and the highest lake in Ireland, of which two group members decided on a dip in the icy depths! Brave Brave people. Up the gully, and upwards again to the summit. As ever with high peaks, views are NOT guarenteed, and rain had come our way. The sense of achievement though is paramount. Back down through the zig zags mean you have done two summits and throughout it all, kerryclimbers keep you talking, engaged, telling you the stories of the mountain range and it's history. Back to Cronins Yard for a well earned Soup and Cake, it was a tremendous day and experience. I will DEFINITELY use kerryclimbing again, they are everything you want from a guided hike, professional, safe, fun and really well priced. Why would you use anyone else??. Transformative experience.

The mountaineering course was a great experience and very informative. You learn the first steps in navigating by compass and card and in the afternoon hands on practicing of the new learned skills.
