Gerry is probably the most knowledgeable person I have met on the history of the West of Ireland. He had a wonderful way of making any walk interesting. We had a day with Gerry in the Westport area. We plan to go back next year for a few days in Connemara. We also got some great pointers on nightlife (restaurants, bars, etc) in the Westport area. Anyone visiting the Westport area for a few days should spend a day trekking. Thoroughly enjoyable. Memories will last a long time.

We have had a number of fabulous days walking in Connemara with Gerry who is an excellent and knowledgable guide based in Westport and covering Connemara and much more. His knowledge is second to none and he knows the area like the back of his hand. Our days were full of great walking, beautiful scenery and great craic! Gerry is an experienced and really personable guide for whom nothing is too much trouble. He's available for one day excursions as well as longer trips and can tailor make a personal itinerary which is what he did for us. We were so impressed with Gerry that we've signed up for for one of his European trips - a week's walking in Andalusia in October, 2015. Highly recommended.

Gerry and Bernie were wonderful hosts and the B&B experience was exceptional. Our days were filled with beautiful scenery, interesting stories, great meals and some of the best hikes in the world. Walking back to the B&B after dinner was always a perfect way to end the day.

This was my first time staying at a B&B; if others are as wonderful as this one, then I have truly been missing out on an incredible experience! The couple running the place were extremely warm, hospitable, and attentive to individual needs. The day trip tours were amazing - packed full of a variety of activities. I really enjoyed the magnificent hikes, Clare Island being especially memorable. I think this might be my best vacation to date!
