Paul is a really excellent guide. Highly knowledgable and very experienced. With all the requisite recognised National qualifications (Mountain Leader/Emergency First Aid and Evacuation etc) he communicates in a really relaxed and informal style. Paul shares his love for the hills and intertwines this with a really comprehensive understanding of Irish History, Geology and Flora and Fauna. I had an excellent hike and thoroughly enjoyable day on Mweelrea with Paul. His calm demeanour and plethora of experience put me at ease throughout what was a really enjoyable and memorable day. I would highly recommend Paul as a guide. Walk Connemara was highly professional and proficient, from initial enquiry to booking and follow up communication it was faultless. If your considering a walk or hike then book with Paul and Walk Connemara - you won’t be disappointed.

Oh wow: thank you for the exceptional review. It is very good of you to spread the word in such a comprehensive way. It was a pleasure to guide you to the highest summit in the Connaught province: and you were good company too! I enjoyed giving you some pointers on mountain navigation: you seem to have an aptitude for mountain skills so I encourage you to take the formal training & wish you the best of luck. Paul Phelan

Paul guided our family on three walks: Omey Beach, Derryclare Woods, and Roundstone Bog. These walks were the highlight of our Ireland vacation. Paul tailored the walks to meet the needs of our 80-year-old grandma, 22-year-old Appalachian through-hiker, and everyone in between. He is patient, safety-conscious, knowledgeable, and kind. The Omey Beach Walk was perfect for everyone in our group. The sturdier walkers took the invigorating bog and woods walks. Experiencing Ireland's sublime beauty with these off-trail walks was joy-inducing and unforgettable.

There can be no better guide to see the beauty of the Wild Atlantic Way than Paul Phelan. He is warm, knowledgeable, and a genuine pleasure to hike with. Paul takes good care of his hikers and is always ready for a break if the group needs it. He's a fine gentleman, I highly recommend taking a tour with him!

I had the pleasure of hiring Paul over the course of two days in early April 2019. The first hike was up the side of Errisbeg for some stunning views and the second was a gorgeous walk within the Roundstone Bog. Both experiences rank amongst my favorite in Ireland. Paul knows his stuff and will take good care of you. I had a great two days.
