About Us

Achill Island, Mayo

I live in beautiful County Mayo, in the West of Ireland and lead nature-based walking tours in Mayo and Connemara. Mayo is one hour north of Galway and Connemara, one hour south of Sligo and three hours west of Dublin.

My walking tours are centred in Mayo and Connemara, with one annual birdwatching trip in spring to Poland’s East and a walking week to the South of France in autumn. I love to learn about trees, birds, mammals, flowers, history, legends, architecture, folklore and anything else to do with our shared heritage and culture.

Tourism Pure Walking Holidays offers sustainable tourism to rural areas of great natural beauty and interest. A registered trainer of the Leave No Trace outdoors ethics programme, I lead walking tours in a sustainable manner that does not damage the environment and its many inhabitants. I am registered with Fáilte Ireland (Ireland’s National Tourism Development Board) as a provider of guided walking holidays. I am a qualified Marine and Countryside Guide (with distinction) and am fully insured.

Come and join me on a guided walking holiday in the West of Ireland.

Je parle français. Ich spreche deutsch.

See you soon,
Barry Murphy.
