Health and Safety
It is of paramount importance to us that you are safe on your tour. Some of our trails require a reasonable level of fitness.

Please listen to and follow your guides recommendations while on the tours, it is for your safety and benefit.
It is lovely to have your children out but please be responsible for them while outdoors and by coastal/mountainous areas or around livestock. A child is considered less than 16 years of age in Ireland. It is advised not to bring children under 4 years as suitability depends on the trail location, duration and weather conditions. Please dress them appropriately for the outdoors.
Our weather In Ireland changes frequently. Coastal and mountainous conditions can change quickly too. We strongly recommend you wear hiking boots and wear wind and waterproof clothing. We rarely cancel and go in all weathers so it is up to you to bring the right clothing. Some of the sites we take you to are up on heights so bring wind and waterproof jacket and trousers for those, a hat for wind and cold, and bring sunscreen too, you can get burnt even in the wind/ haze!
For mountain treks, we recommend hiking poles. They always help on uneven ground, especially if you have knee/ankle or hip concerns.
If you are meeting your guide at a particular location, please pay attention to the directions and instructions provided by your guide. Please park with respect to the width of the road, to pedestrians, and to residents living nearby. Please do not park on front of farm/house gates. Farmers need to get in and out of their fields and this can happen at any time of the day! Lock your doors and do not leave anything visible on the seats.
It is not permitted to bring your dog/s even on leads.
