Family Hiking Trip
Jun 2018 • Family
We recently returned home from or third hiking holiday with Ireland Walk Hike Bike (formerly Southwest Walks). Many thanks to Francis and Maria who custom planned a hiking trip for our combined families. Things could not have gone more smoothly and our trip was most enjoyable. Our guide, Dirk, was excellent. He could not have been more informative & entertaining as well as patient with our differing hiking skills. Our B&Bs were excellent, the owners very welcoming, and dinners at local restaurants delicious. Ireland Walk Hike Bike's attention to detail takes the fuss and worry out of a hiking holiday abroad.
