“The weekend was most enjoyable. Barry seemed to be able to tell when the group needed a breather going up the mountain. Your knowledge seems extensive, Barry, which really makes the walks most interesting – well done.” – Nick & Jean A., Dublin.

“I had never managed to get out to Iniskea, until I found out about the boat trips organised by Barry. This trip was a lifetime memory. The weather was fantastic. Barry is probably one of the most funny and knowledgeable guides you can find around Mayo. We also saw some seals and I was impressed by the sensibility with which Barry led the group to see them. This tour and I guess also the other tours by Barry are a must, if you are in Mayo.” – Chris K., Germany.

“Super weekend. Walks very interesting. Great cultural experience. Your delivery, Barry, is excellent. Ended well in pub.” – Marie K., Dublin.

“A really lovely weekend, great walks, lovely guide who was so well informed, knowledgeable and interesting – and helpful in every way. Great fun, will do it again and would like to be informed about similar events in future.” – Máire O., Dublin.

“My wife and I joined Barry’s walking tour of S Iniskea Island in mid September. It was one of those great and wonderfully memorable days. The tour was thrilling (7.5 meter open boat trip on the Atlantic), educational and awe-inspiring (‘spying’ on seals at rest and rare-bird watching). Barry has a charisma all his own and you always felt that you were in the best of hands….hands that truly care about the Mayo environment too……one of the very best days I’ve spent in Ireland……highly recommend!!!” – Larry & Eileen B., USA.

“I found Barry very helpful if you are interested in the local heritage. He will take you where you want to go and his local knowledge is excellent. He is very interactive with his clients.” – Eric C., Dublin.

“It has been a terrific weekend of fresh air, beautiful scenery, absorbing and highly informative history and nature stories and revelations. Go raibh míle maith agaibh go léir.” – Áine A, Meath.
