Flan Kelly

  A native of Dublin now based in Galway my interest in hill walking came about quite by chance. My previous career in the travel and tourism sector included packaging hillwalking holidays in mainland Europe using local guides. I took the opportunity to accompany one of our groups on a walking tour in Austria and I was bitten. Making new friends, spectacular scenery, fresh air and exercise, an intoxicating cocktail indeed.

I nurtured my new found interest exploring the equally splendid landscape of Connemara and the West of Ireland and a new career path was born.

Moving to the West some years ago I trained as a Marine and Countryside Guide and together with my colleagues I am confident that 
  we can offer you a complete West of Ireland experience that will last long in the memory.

Equally at home in the spectacular mountains of Connemara or walking 
along the rugged Atlantic shoreline I   
  look forward to making many new friends over the years to come. Why not try some Nordic Walking as part of your walking experience? Many of our low level walks are ideally suited to this form  of exercise and as a qualified Nordic Walking    Instructor I will be happy to teach you the basic techniques with poles provided. With my background in travel and tourism I can arrange a comprehensive programme for you whether it’s in the mountains, by the coast or a visit to our many    Cultural and Heritage sites. Add in evenings of entertainment experiencing the traditional music and ‘Craic’ of Ireland West and your holiday will be complete!

I look forward to your company.
