Liz did an amazing job while taking my mom and I on the short hike. She was extremely knowledgeable in regards to the history of the hike location and Ireland. She did an excellent job at entertaining along the walk as well as pointing out views that we would normally not have noticed. I will definitely be doing another trip... More

Had a great guided walk today with Liz, accompanied by my two grown up children, who were taking me out for my birthday! Liz was a great guide and very flexible. Would recommend it heartily to anyone who likes a walk/hike and wants to explore the Dublin hills with a guide and enjoy a few stories along the way.

Definitely glad our group of 5 got to experience this hike in the Dublin Mountains. It didn't hurt that we had a great sunny day that allowed for nice views of Dublin city and the bay area. It's a beautiful walk through the forest and up and over one of the mountains (hill); it's not too strenuous at all, although... More

We saw this advertised through the Church Restaurant and thought it would be fun to get out and explore the Dublin Mountain as we are both hill walkers. Liz who runs... More

We recently booked the Heavenly Views Trail, as part of a package, 'The Church,' advertised. Communication from the UK was prompt, friendly and very helpful. As part of a group of 10 we were in Dublin celebrating as part of a Hen party. Although we arrived at the meeting point with a few sore heads, we were warmly greeted and... More
