Past Traveller Feedback

Everything was perfect. Great personalized service. Knowledgeable, very nice and very experienced guides. Great choice of walks, B&Bs, restaurants, side visits and excellent recommendations. Very detailed oriented, they treat each one of their walkers as unique special guests. I have used many walking companies in Europe and I know I am a tough demanding customer. They are at the top 1%, they excel in every area.

I wholeheartedly recommend this company and would go with them again without hesitation.
Our guide, Margo, could not have been more perfect for our group of mature women intrepid walkers. The routes we took were stunningly beautiful and the Irish people could not have been more warm and welcoming. The accommodations were very comfortable and great locations for exploring after our day hikes. The meals were excellent – there is no scrimping, they took us to the best restaurants in town and we were always impressed with the food and the lovely company of Margo or being charmed by Maurice! Good to know for future reference is that the trips are all customizable, I would use this company for sure in the future to organize a trip for my local group. Can’t wait to go back to Ireland!


Have just returned from another guided hike with this great company. I’ve travelled from Australia several times to do guided group walks with Ireland walk hike bike. This was the wild Atlantic way and islands. Again I was so impressed with our guide Linda, the lovely bed and breakfasts and small hotels we stayed in and the well organised transport. Last but not least there is the beautiful Irish countryside to immerse yourself in. I’ll be doing another one.

My wife Cathie and I truly enjoyed our experience. Maria, who did the admin and planning was always available, responsive and knowledgeable. Denis our guide was great. He is an experienced outdoorsman and had a wealth of knowledge about the area, history, geology, wildlife and plants. He was very easy to spend time with. All the walks were interesting, varied and beautiful. We felt we got off the usual tourist routes. We stayed in 3 very nice places; and the longest, 5 nights in Killarney Lodge, we liked the best. It was centrally located in town, friendly, quiet. We loved the staff and the wonderful breakfast. Catherine, the owner, was a gem. All and all we had a great trip. We recommend Ireland Walk Hike Bike highly.
