We climbed Craughan with Gerard and will definitely return to do Slievemore another time. Highly recommend. Gerard set a good pace, made sure we followed a safe path and saw all the best viewing points and told us all about the history of Achill and other islands.

I climbed Croaghaun and Slievemore with Gerard. I couldn't recommend him highly enough. An absolute pleasure to hike with, a gentleman. His relaxed manner, steady and relaxed pace and huge knowledge of the environment made these hikes most enjoyable. These mountains can be very difficult to navigate when the fog descends (and it did!), but Gerard seemed to know every rock along our trail! A most competent and confident hike leader. I'll definitely be back for more hikes around Achill soon!

Just finished doing a walking tour with Gerard. A local expert with an encyclopedic knowledge of Achill Island, history, geography, famine, flora, fauna and Ireland in general. A gentleman with the very important tour guide attribute of a sense of humour. I cannot recommend Gers tours highly enough to enhance your visit to Achill. Thanks again Ger.

I climbed both Croaghaun and Slievemore on Achill with Gerard. As a native archaeologist he knows every last thing about Achill Island‘s history, as a mountain guide he knows every last stone and weather system. He is a walking encyclopaedia, loves to crack jokes and little wind ups as you are scaling the most beautiful landscapes together. You will have a blast with Gerard. Highly recommended!
