  • I have been on four hikes now with WicklowMountainsGuide (Damien. I have really enjoyed them all, Damien has great knowledge of the history of Glendalough which makes for an interesting guide. I am an absolute beginner when it come to hiking and each time out I felt comfortably challenged, and encouraged by Damien. I would recommend WicklowMountainsGuide for all levels for a great day hiking

  • Aloha, My friend and I traveled 2 Ireland to hike The Wicklow Way a few months ago. It was a bucket list trip 4 me! We stayed at The Loughdan House with Sean and Theresa. I had planned 4 us 2 to hike South to North in 8 days. We were to have a guide . We met Damien Kennedy on our 1st day. He led us on 6 of the 8 days through The Wicklow Way. I would say we are novice hikers in International hiking. Damien is a great guide…..
