Me in 3: Explorer | Caring | Passionate
Favourite Place to Play: I’ll look for any excuse to play anywhere! But if I had to choose one spot, I would say the woods. With so many cool trees to climb, places to hide and tracks to explore, it’s one big playground. Reenadinna Yew Forest in Killarney National Park is the most magical place that I’ve ever been… step off the trail and you’re totally lost in nature.
Not a lot of people know about me: I once hitch-hiked around Ireland in search of some remarkable trees that I found in a book I picked up somewhere. It was quite the adventure, meeting loads of interesting characters and a couple of peacocks and a bull in an old farm in Kilkenny.
Mini bio: I was lucky enough to grow up in beautiful County Wicklow, so the “Garden of Ireland” was my actual garden! It was here that I developed my love of the natural world and all things green. I used to drive my career guidance teachers crazy in school when I would tell them that all I wanted to do was get a boat and travel the world.
Nowadays, having done a good bit of exploring the globe, I’ve returned to Ireland and I’m wondering why I ever left as there is just endless places to explore here and natural beauty as good as anywhere I’ve seen. I really love people too and listening to their stories, people are nature too! My biggest passion now is to connect people back to nature and the land. I still want to get that boat some day too.

Adventurer's Stories about Ciarán
Ciaran was excellent even went back to the van to get me some walking polesJane Mary Cheshire
He flawlessly changed the itinerary when we could not go out to the islands, which was the main reason we chose the trip
Ciaran went out of his way to be helpful, arranging alternatives to Island visits, which were cancelled, boats unable to put to sea. Knowledgeable about nature, history and local places to visit.Mike Cheshire
