While climbing Carrauntoohil is do-able with a basic level of fitness, think walking in the hills for 5-6 hours, there are dangers that come with climbing any mountain. So if you aren’t an experienced hill walker or would prefer to enjoy a great day out without navigation or route finding worries, then allow me to be your guide.

As we walk Id be happy to tell you about the history and culture of the area.

What do you need to bring?

You will need to bring appropriate clothing for the Irish outdoors. A rain jacket and trousers and walking boots offering a good level of ankle protection. Plenty of water, lunch and some snacks. Prior to the walk, I’ll send you a detailed list of requirements.
