    Favourite place to play

    Although I am a fan of my home county, the beautiful County Cork, I would have to say that my favourite place to play is Mayo. County Mayo on the northwest Wild Atlantic Way has it all – beautiful coastline, mountains, rivers, crags, forests and with less of a name for itself than some of the other counties in Ireland, it is not overrun with people!

    Not a lot of people know this

    I am an expert in covert camping and camp-cooking… keep reading to find out why!


    I qualified and worked as a lawyer for a couple of years in the lovely west cork town of Clonakilty before heading back work as an outdoor guide/instructor. I figured that if I didn’t enjoy life as a lawyer living and working in the beautiful such lovely surrounding, then it probably wasn’t for me. I have just returned from over two years away travelling where, along with my fiancée, we spent the majority of our time living in huts, tents, camper vans, boats, caravans and hammocks.

    • Level 2 Kayak Instructor
    • Rock Climbing Instructor
    • Mountain Leader trained
    • Qualified solicitor (lawyer) and gave up the desk for a life in the outdoors.

    I have worked in the outdoor industry for years as a kayak guide, cycle guide and forest school leader.  That being said, I am currently studying social work.  Maybe I’ll get an office with a retractable roof!

    Outdoor Activities Read More

    I enjoy nothing more than being in the mountains, be it on a mountain bike, in my hiking boots or strapped to a pair of skis. I sea kayak and surf (badly) and I am basically at my most content when I am immersed in nature.

    Travel & Biggest Adventures Read More

    I have spent much time travelling around with plenty of camping, tramping and adventuring. Most recently I have travelled in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. My fiancée and I spent three months living in the back of a 30 year old GMC van on a tiny island off Vancouver that had passed a by-law outlawing camping. So, I have become an expert in covert camping and camp-cooking.
