Eoin Warner

Eoin Warner guide Wilderness IrelandMe in 3: Fun | Passionate | Considerate

Favourite place to play: The Dingle Peninsula (Chorca Dhuibhne in Irish) in West Kerry. The dramatic landscape shaped by the wild Atlantic Ocean just blows your mind every time you turn a corner.

Not a lot of people know this: I also make Irish wildlife television documentaries (in Irish)!

Mini Bio: Ever since I was a child, I’ve spent as much time as possible in the outdoors. Hiking mountains and river valleys, being in or under the sea, enjoying the company of the wild animals and nature that share these amazing places with us – this is where I am most content and at home. I have spent the last twenty years helping guests to enjoy Ireland in an authentic and fun way, revealing the beautiful landscape and the layers of culture, history, music, language, wildlife and delicious local food. I love nothing more than having a good laugh and sharing good food & wine – I especially love picnics!


Qualifications 

  • Remote emergency First Aid, Level 3
  • CIPD award in Coaching, Mentoring & Consulting  – National College of Ireland
  • MSc in Strategy, Innovation & People Management  – National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG)
  • Bachelors Degree in International Hotel Management ; Diploma in Business Studies – Shannon College of Hotel Management (NUIG)

Previous experience

I have been working in hospitality for the last 25 years. I love creating and sharing great experiences with guests from my various roles of working in 5 star Irish hotels to guiding travellers through the beautiful wilds of Ireland.

Travel/Biggest Adventures 

Over the years, I have had the privilege of travelling in 26 countries spread across all 7 continents! My biggest adventures have been to travel to Antarctica to see the amazing wildlife and more recently to backpack throughout South East Asia with my family of 2 young boys for 3 months.

Outdoor Activities

I have always been drawn to the outdoors – it’s where I most feel at home. If there is an activity that allows me to experience the wilder places of Ireland, I’m there: fly-fishing for trout and salmon, foraging for wild food, free diving and open water swimming, hiking, gardening, bee-keeping and laughing at every opportunity!

Hobbies, Passions & Specialty Topics

My wife keeps reminding me that I have too many interests and hobbies! I have always been besotted and intrigued by the natural world around me, and I have been lucky enough to have been involved in the making of several Irish wildlife documentaries, in both English and Irish Gaelic. At times I have had to pinch myself at the idea that kayaking around Ireland’s coast while discovering its wildlife was going to be a part of my career! 

One of the biggest decisions I have made over the years was to follow a passion and move to the West Kerry Gaelteacht (Irish-speaking region) for a year to study the Irish language and sean-nós singing (traditional Irish singing practiced in the Gaeltacht). It was an amazing experience of cultural immersion that has enriched and changed my life’s path.

Favourite Regions

I have spent many years getting to know the wilder corners of Ireland, its remote mountains, islands and coasts and yet I feel I have only scratched the surface of what there is to discover. That is probably what excites me so much about my role as a guide, introducing guests to these amazing places and the interesting characters that have made their lives there (both animal & human!). Some of the regions that I love in particular are Kerry (and Dingle in particular), West Cork, Galway, Connemara, Clare and Mayo.
