    in Your Own Words

    We had the pleasure and good fortune to have both Donncha and Louise on our trip. Louise was amazing and while I am sure she is treasured in the office- she would be a fantastic guide! Louise went above and beyond on our trip- ensuring all hikers were enjoying their Wilderness Ireland experience. I cannot express enough my gratitude for her help pre-trip and during the trip! Many thanks to both Louise and Donncha for their generosity of knowledge, culture and spirit on this trip.
