We recently did the Coomloughra Horseshoe Loop. As this was our first time in the Reeks and tackling Beenkerragh Ridge we decided to book a guide for the day. After some research we opted to go with Kerry Climbing. They were fantastic. From our initial chat with Piaras to booking with Catherine who ensured we would be well taken care of. Our guide for the day "Mick" was super. He is a mindful of knowledge who's number one priority is safety and to make sure everyone in the group gets the most out of their day. Whether it's a first time trip or a return visit a booking with Kerry Climbing is the way to go. We had a top class day and can highly recommend Kerry Climbing for a great day out.

Climbed the Coomloughra Horseshoe last week with a friend. We hired a guide (Andy) through Kerry Climbing and the whole experience was seamless and professional from the start. Catherine in the office was a pleasure to deal with and Andy with his encouragement and knowledge of the mountain made for a great experience. Not having climbed in the area before I would highly recommend hiring a guide and could not recommend Kerry Climbing highly enough. I would also recommend lots of training....

A great day had by all, even tho we were all absolute novice climbers from the east. Andy our guide was terrific and great craic. He completely took all the worry out of it and second guessing out of it - making the whole experience much more enjoyable. We would see it essential that any first timers get a guide. Even tho we had perfect conditions and the trail was busy with people (i.e. we could just follow other people) there were a few times his guidance made what could have been disastrous decisions into trivial things. Well done to all at kerry climbing the whole experience was effortless...(except the obvious climbing part!)

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! We wanted to give our 15 year old son a glimpse of rock climbing in Ireland. The Gap of Dunloe is ABSOLUTELY stunning and I would 100% recommend Kerry Climbing. Booking was very easy thanks to Catherine. I really appreciated Piaras as our guide because he took the time to educate us on how to be safe and better climbers. He also made the climbs suitable for all different levels so everyone in the group could truly enjoy the experience. Thank you SO very much Kerry Climbing! This was definitely one of our top experiences in Ireland!

Climbing Carrauntoohil with Piaras, was really great. You feel safe due to his extensive experience and good information. He’s a great storyteller as well.
