I will meet with my hiking group at Kate Kearney's Cottage, in The Gap of Dunloe, Killarney at 10:30. After I have made sure they have the right hiking footwear and clothing for our walk, I will discuss our day with them and show them our route clearly on the map. We will start our walk together at a leisurely pace and I will make sure that everybody is comfortable and happy. We will stop at regular intervals for people to enjoy the scenery and have some food and drinks. During the walk I like to talk with my group about flora, fauna related to the area, and sites of interest such as standing stones, stone circles or ancient dwelling places. The walking route will be to Tomies Wood and the lower slopes of Tomies and Shehy mountains in Killarney National Park. Every one of my guided walks has its' own particular places of outstanding beauty. I always aim to make my walks a very special and memorable experience for my clients.
