    The Guiding Team

    What Can You Expect out in the Field

    Wilderness Ireland is based in an incredible location on the west coast of Ireland in the beautiful Co. Sligo. We offer a special combination of interesting work, career opportunities and a supportive culture in which to thrive as a freelance guide. We have steadily grown over the years and plan to continue this growth path, which in turn, will offer a wide range of guiding opportunities, from those that are activity-focused to those which take on more of a cultural or family focus.
