Your Local Host:
Colin and Cathy
Moving to Ireland in 2009, we left the frenetic buzz of big city life behind us, hoping to create a different lifestyle in the countryside. Colin, who is an Irishman, already had the love of the west of Ireland imprinted in his heart, having spent all his childhood summers fishing the many rivers and loughs for its famous wild salmon and trout.
In search of our ‘place’ in this crazy world, we chose the wilds of Connemara on the Wild Atlantic Way to settle and see if it would measure up to our high expectations…and boy does it deliver on that, and much, much more!
The tour takes place in Killarney National Park, in County Kerry, west of Cork in the southwest of the country. A stunning area, Ireland’s first national park is home to some incredible scenery including ancient forests, mountains and lakes.
Your hike with culminate in two of the park’s most spectacular sights, the summit of Torc Mountain, and the beautiful Torc Waterfall.
