Tour map


“Alice arranged a memorable trip for our family in July 2015. We went on a personalized hiking tour of the highest mountains in Ireland which included Carrauntoohil, Mangeton Mountain and the stunning Mount Brandon. We also did an artisan food tour, we went to Gaelic Football game (which was a great experience for my Soccer loving son). Our driver was so funny & clicked with our family perfectly which made the holiday even more special. I just really got the feeling that Alice clicked with our specifications from the get go & I will not book with anyone else for Ireland, she really
is the expert”
