I would recommend WicklowMountainsGuide

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
