The most entertaining hike ever!
, Oct 2021
It was late September and rainy so I was the only hardy soul that showed up for the hike. James was my knowledgeable hike leader and Richard joined for a bit as well. When we had to take cover under the trees during the rainstorm, they were literally dancing and singing in the rain for a good laugh. Stunningly beautiful scenery and the funniest, most entertaining hike leaders you could ever want. I'll go again next trip!

We did get some heavy downpours of good Killarney rain that morning, but that was never going to dampen James spirits. I hasten to add he had not partaken of any spirits, but he is almost a compulsive singer and dancer. I had to join you for some of the walk, and of course i add to sing and dance in the rain as well. Looking forward to your next walk for more of the same. Slán go fóill (bye a while).
Friendly experienced tour guide, open to dogs
, Sep 2021
I made this tour on a heavy rainy day, but with my tour guide Richard Clancy the walk was a great pleasure anyway! He knows every path of the National Park and because of that he can customize the tour. You can bring your dog with you :) Clear recommendation!

Yes it was a very wet day, but i still enjoyed the walk very much. I think its much better to be outdoors even if its raining rather than been indoors looking out at it. Thanks for walking with me, and for writing a lovely review. I hope you return soon so i can show you some more of the beautiful places in Killarney National Park. Slán go fóill (bye a while).

A great morning stroll
, Sep 2021
Richard our guide is a local born and bred in the area who had an amazing depth of knowledge about the woodland and the lakes including boyhood memories of his popular swimming holes. He also has a broad grasp of the historical facts in relation to the formation of the National Park and was very willing to impart advise on the area. As an added boys he is a fluent Irish speaker which is a great help in explaining the background to local places

I am delighted you enjoyed the guided walk in Killarney National Park. I call this area my back garden as i was born, and raised just across the road from this part of the park. I have walked these pathways all my life, and i love history especially the local stuff. Go raibh míle maith agat (a thousand thanks) for writing a great review, and dont forget to return here for another holiday. Slán go fóill (bye a while).

Beautiful area and great guide
, Aug 2021
Richard was a great guide and seemed to know everyone in the area. We went through some great trails and identified local plants and saw so many deer. I had a lovely time. It was such a laid back, informative tour and Killarney is so beautiful I wish I could go back.

I love showing people my back garden Killarney National Park especially when we get the lovely sunshine of recent times. I call it my back garden as i was born, and reared just across the road near St. Marys Cathedral, and exploring the outdoors was always my passion.Thanks for walking with me. Slán go fóill (bye a while).
We LOVED it !

Nature walk in the Kingdom
, Jul 2021
My family and I travelled from Co.Louth to enjoy the National Park and the great Kerry people. We got both of those on this tour. In heatwave temperatures we skirted the lake edge and rambled through forest. It felt like another kingdom. This National park is safe in the hands of the Kerry people. Mike thanks for the tour and “I’ll get you next time…”.

Yes we have some places around Loch Léin in Killarney National Park which could be described as Irelands Amazon. I was born and reared just across the road from this area, and its the place i love most. A wilderness area which thankfully hasnt changed much over the centuries.Thanks for walking with me, and for writing this review. Slán go fóill.
Great experience. Great Value.
, Jul 2021
Great experience. The tour guide provided us with the history of the park, Lakes, Ross Castle, The tree of the sleeping Monk, restaurant recommendations and places to visit. He was also very pleasant and great craic. Tickets were only €10. Well worth it and great value. Can’t go wrong with only a tenner.

It was a lovely day, and when we get good dry weather i like to go off the beaten path to some of the best places in Killarney National Park. I love to walk around the shore of Loch Léin, and you could easily spend a few hours in the vicinity of Ross Castle or the old copper mines. Thanks for the great review, and i hope you both get the chance to discover more of what Killarney has to offer. Slán go fóill.

Really enjoyable walk
, Sep 2020
Thanks Mike for a very enjoyable and informative 2 hours with lots of history of the beautiful Killarney national park. Our walk went off the regular paths but really easy to negotiate as Mike went at our pace. We especially enjoyed seeing the deer out grazing and the jersey cows. We loved hearing the history about the families that lived in there in the past . We would recommend a visit to Killarney House which is free to visit. Mike kept us on our toes with the promise of a little quiz at the end. We would certainly recommend this tour.

I am delighted that you enjoyed the walk so much in the beautiful early Autumn sunshine. Yes there lots to see mountains in the distance, walk in the woods around Loch Léin in the Ross Castle area. Thanks for your great review, and I wish you safe travel. Slán go fóill (bye a while).
