I appreciated the quick turnaround of feedback and finding an actual person at the other end of the email rather than automated responses.
I had a wonderful time on my trip. Our guide, Callium, was great and made our hikes really pleasant and interesting. We loved all the stories and folklore of faeries, and the fun little detours. His calm and proficient manner made us all feel comfortable and safe. He managed well with the different levels of fitness in our group and made sure to assist those who were not experienced hikers. All the hotels were lovely especially the Spa venue. The 1st hotel in Inneskerry could use a good clean, but I think everyone is still finding their feet again after lockdown etc. The meals and packed lunches were generally really good as well. We would have loved a Trad session at the end of the tour in stead of the cover band, but that was a minor thing compared to the awesome time we all had. Our group gelled nicely and we possibly made some lasting friendships. I hope to book another if your tours in the future.
Accommodation & Food
The hotels got better and better as we progressed on the tour with the spa venue being the highlight for everyone. A nice way to relax after a week of hiking. The 1st hotel in Inneskerry needed a good clean and some of the places were understaffed, but I think everyone is trying to find their feet again after the chaos of Covid lockdowns etc. so not a major issue for one night stays. Overall it was all good and adequate for a hiking tour.
Callium was a great guide with infinite patience and quiet, good humour. We all really enjoyed hiking with our fearless leader and enjoyed his stories and folklore and the fun little detours on our routes. See my other notes in the overall comments.
