    Adventurer's Stories about Warner

    Warner is simply the best at his job. Five Stars. Claire Brogan added a lot to the trip as a "special guest". She is kind, helpful and so fun.

    Although described as "easy", some of the hikes had a lot of up and down, some climbing over rocks on steep trails. I have knee and ankle arthritis, which makes me very slow and sometimes unsteady on that kind of terrain, and Werner was so careful and kind about giving me a hand where necessary. I couldn't have done it without him, and he was never impatient with my slowness. Much gratitude to him for that.

    Warner was a gem- his generous personality, knowledge & stories of the area along with the care of the group, was second to none. When the weather prevented us going to 2 of the trips main sites- Blasket Islands & Stellig Michael- Warner made sure we were entertained & found interesting alternatives. Great guy. & natural guide.

    Warner was knowledgeable, fun and enthusiastic. Also very organized--everything went smoothly except for the weather. He was always helpful and did his best to make every member of the group feel valued. I loved his stories and songs.

    They were supportive and helpful. When I struggled with more climbing (fatigue related) Warner helped me up without question. I always felt that they were there for support when needed.

    Warner and Donncha were superb. They were accommodating of everyone's different needs, encouraging, and fun. We appreciated Donncha's passion for everything Irish and Warner's stories of adventure and mishap, and especially enjoyed their amazing renditions of Irish songs.

    Warner and Andrew were the reason our trip was so enjoyable. Their knowledge of the area and their bubbly personalities and wit made our adventure even more fun. Both of them had the ability to spin a good Irish yarn.

    Warner Wilders gets a 5 star rating. Loved his outgoing personality, fun sense of humor, positive attitude, etc, etc. The trip was successful in large part due to having him as our group's guide.

    They provided us with good information and support. My only suggestion for improvement would be that it would have been nice for the water bottles to have been washed on a daily basis. It left potential for infections to potentially spread between the riders.
