Thank you for an amazing week.  I've learned a lot and found a place in my heart for Ireland.  Thank you for making lifelong memories.  Looking forward to my next trip!


You were a wonderful guide and have made this trip special, thank you. 

Gary,Gayle and family

Thank you for making our Ireland holiday so 'grand'.  It was a very special trip because all your shared with us.  We will talk bout this trip for many years to come.  

Dave & Janet

Thank you for all the action memories! We enjoyed your humour and your knowledge of Ireland and its history and wildlife.  Best wishes to you both and good luck in the future. Slante!


Thank you for an amazing week - 12 out of 10. You showed great leadership in bringing together a disparate group for a perfect week of adventures a fun.  Your quiet confidence, competence, kindness and wealth of knowledge and above all humour were the most signifiant factors in the howling success of this Ireland adventure.  I will always think of you with great respect and fondness.  Have more wonderful adventures and think of us sometimes!

Kim & Tori

We had the most fantastic time with you over the past week.  I think there must indeed be fairies or little people here because the countryside and views have been magical.  Ireland is beautiful, thank you for bringing it to life.  I know we'll remember you and this trip forever!!

John, Pam & Family

Thank you so much for being such a friendly and knowledgeable guide on our tour of Ireland.  Your personality and attitude and flexibility along with your expertise enhanced our time here.  While we have stayed in some fancy places, by far the most valuable and moving experience of this trip was our walk along the famine road.  Thank you for sharing your beautiful country with us. 

Nancy & Mitch

We couldn't have had a better guide for our first trip to Ireland - we have travelled many places and have decided that your country is the friendliest ever!! As well as beautiful.  Thank you.  

Mary R - Heritage Group organiser

​THANK YOU ALL for the fantastic experience on Thursday night last.  The storytelling and entertainment by Dan were excellent, he was part of the icing on the cake, but the cherry award goes to yourself and Ged for the Dark Sky Experience. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed it and I can only describe it as magical. We are already planning for the next group outing in September.


You made this trip so wonderful and special.  I learned so much!  Thank you for all your help and enthusiasm.  Your love of Ireland really shines through.  

Karen - After-school Club Parent

I cannot recommend highly enough the Terra Firma Club for after school.  Our son counts the days between sessions, he is excited and always enthusiastic to return each week, despite the rain and cold.  Many other extra curricular activities he has gotten involved in have needed some encouragement, but not the outdoor activity club!

It has given our 6 year old boy a great appreciation of the outdoors, a new love of nature and an awareness of how to respect and protect our beautiful countryside.   The Terra Firma Club is run by a professional team who have an enthusiastic and fun attitude, the kids are excited by the activities and have a great respect for the leaders. 

Fiona - After-school Club Parent

Terra Firma Club is a great experience for both boys and girls.  They love the freedom and adventures they have.  The leaders have made learning about the outdoors and survival skills both fun and informative.  They have covered everything from setting up camp, basic first aid and even singing happy birthday in Spanish!  My kids can't wait to go - even when it's pouring rain. 


We've had a great, grand and brilliant time hiking the hills and mountains of Ireland.  Your humorous stories have enlivened our journey and distracted us from any aches and pains.  We've seen a lot and learned a lot.  We will be back to the isle of green!

Gary and Cheryl

You made our 50th anniversary MARVELLOUS!  Thank you for your kindness, informative tour and Excellent Driving!  One of my adventures of a lifetime.  Fondly,

Cathy & Rob

You are a fantastic guide and person.  So organised, so caring, so much fun!  Thanks for the great adventure in Ireland.  We will be back.

Brian, Johanna & family

Thank you for being a great guide.  It has been really fun hanging out with you and getting to know you.  We loved visiting the sheep especially.  Sorry the irish lost to France.  Maybe they will win next time.  GO IRELAND!  Thanks again.

Cathy E

Thanks for sharing your passion, knowledge and humour.  You made this trip one of the best I have ever taken. I'm sure the stars were aligned.  


You have made this trip very special to me.  Thank you for answering all my silly questions and offering excellent opportunities to explore this beautiful place.  XO.
