    Place to play

    The Burren in Clare or the 12 Pins mountain range in Connemara. I love them both, but if hard pressed to choose, I think Connemara would be the winner.

    People think I’m over 6 feet tall but I’m actually only 5 feet 16 inches ;-)

    Mini Bio

    I have loved Ireland’s wild places since I was first introduced to them in the scouts as a teenager and I have been exploring and enjoying the Irish wilderness ever since then. My first experience of guiding or leading others in the outdoors was as a scout leader where I realised that I enjoyed introducing others to the environment that I knew and loved as much as I enjoyed exploring it myself. Since then, I have been leading, guiding and instructing in the great Irish outdoors with youth groups, the Irish Defence Forces and as a wilderness guide.

    Experience Read More

    I have been working and playing in the outdoors all my adult life including 23 years in the Irish Army and recently as an outdoor activity instructor and hiking / hill-walking guide. Getting to do what I love for a living is a great gift that I am very thankful for!

    Travel & Biggest Adventures Read More

    I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to have travelled throughout Europe both for work and on my own adventures. I’ve have had the opportunity to visit the Middle East and West Africa through work. My favourite travel destination is always a new one! The more places I visit, the more itchy my feet get to keep travelling!

    Outdoor Activities Read More

    I have always loved hiking/hillwalking ever since I was a child. More recently, I’ve also fallen in love with more technical activities like rock climbing, alpine climbing and cycling. Perhaps it’s because I’m from an island, but I’ve always been drawn to water sports and activities – snorkelling and kayaking are particular favourites!

    Hobbies & Interests Read More

    Being a guide, of course I love exploring new places – and even better, I love finding new corners of old places! History has always fascinated me, especially making the connections between history, landscape and people past and present. And recently, I’ve picked a new hobby (perhaps unusual in Ireland!) – salsa dancing!

    Favourite Regions Read More

    Connemara and West Mayo – Mayo’s Achill Island is a very special place. Also hiking in the Burren is amazing just because it’s so different to anywhere else! It’s impossible to pick a favourite when the whole west coast is so fantastic.

    Adventurer's Stories about Liam

    Our guide Liam was friendly and knowledgeable and went above and beyond even going so far as to make breakfast for us. He had an upbeat positive attitude and made things work, finding interesting alternatives as the situation developed. He gave credit to the team of folks back at the office too.

    Liam was a knowledgeable, patient and enthusiastic guide introducing Ireland in its totality ranging from beauty of connemara, history of Ireland’s struggles, food and drinks, and irish people and culture. Appreciate him greatly.

    Make Trip Private

    Sometimes it's nice to get family and friends together and travel privately for some quality time. This means you benefit from all the features of the group departure, including hand-picked accommodation and expert local guides and we'll take care of it all. Then you can make your choice of departures dates and we'll get back to you to finalise the details.

    We work together with our team of guides to decide which departures they lead each year. As part of that, guides provide available dates that they are free to be booked. This means that any of the dates you see in the first field of the form below, could be perfect for your private departure or customised tour.
