I had a great week walking with Gerry in County Mayo. Croagh Patrick was the highlight, and a second was the Greenaway bike trail. Accommodation superb!

Beautiful site but path is dangerous and badly eroded with loose rocks , shale and a number of obstacles. Reached three quarters of way up and had wonderful views of Clew bay before rain descended and took longer getting down as the path became very slippery. Somehow they need to improve the path whilst preserving the uniqueness of the area. Also very tasteful open shrine at bottom of hill.

Gerry was a great guide to walk with, great fun and so knowledgeable and easy going with a great passion for the area. It was our 2nd time walking with Gerry and we walked for 2 days, totally different hikes which was brilliant, one mountain Mweelrea and then a fantastic flat walk taking in the breathtaking scenery of leenane and Killary which beauty has to been seen to be believed followed by a few hot ports each day. A really enjoyable weekend & Gerry makes a mean packed lunch to boot!!

We stayed a week on the west side of Ireland. One of the great highlights was the walking/hiking trip to Croagh Patrick. The scenery was spectacular. Our host was friendly and the accommodations perfect. Our walking guide, Gerry, was very knowledgeable. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer!

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.
