    Mini Bio

    Super organised and passionate about travel, Wilderness Ireland is the ideal match for me to put my skills to good work in creating exciting adventures for people to explore and enjoy Ireland.

    Having visited 42 countries and counting, I love to uncover those less obvious, off-the-beaten-path gems. My passion for travel started during my first-year university interrail journey through Eastern Europe, and it has since evolved into a lifelong pursuit.

    The day I finished my final year exams, I hopped on a plane with a one-year round-the-world ticket. Still, I quickly realised the world was much too big to explore in 12 months, so I abandoned the return flight and spent the next five years in Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and South and North America. Originally from Cork, I now call the wild coast of Donegal home. You’ll find me by the sea.

    Favourite Place to Play

    Childhood summers spent sailing around each nook and cranny of the West Cork coast mean this area holds a special place in my heart.

    Not a Lot of People Know This

    My time spent in India brought me fame – I starred in the hit Bollywood movie ‘Fashion’ and was quoted in Lonely Planet Calcutta.

    Education & Experience Read More

    I studied Marketing and Management at university. My work experience has been primarily based in the tech/ startup world in the areas of people operations and learning and development.

    Travel & Biggest Adventure Read More

    This question is just too big to answer – travel is relative to so many factors it’s hard to pinpoint. Bosnia, Ecuador and Israel are my favourite countries to visit. Working on a deep-sea fishing boat and spending a week at a time out at sea is up there as one of my biggest adventures.

    Hobbies & Activities Read More

    Planning my next adventure takes up enough of my time to be classed as a hobby! I love walking, hiking, running and generally just being outdoors. I’m happiest by the sea.

    Favourite Region Read More

    Having moved to the area in recent years, the northwest is my favourite area to explore – boundless coastline along the Wild Atlantic Way, secluded beaches, excellent dining spots and welcoming locals offer up endless adventures.
