Wonderful hiking experience with superb hospitality, expertise & local knowledge. I booked a 3 day hiking experience with Terra Firma for the Newport & Achill area. From the start there was a warm welcome & encouragement to join. The hikes were well designed with insider knowledge of the best routes for variation & the terrain conditions. Each hike had many wonderful vistas to delight the senses. Our guides Ged & Georgina were experts in pointing out the local flora & fauna which added a depth of appreciation for the natural habitats we were hiking through. Their hospitality, service, local knowledge, expertise, story telling, folklore, history & baked goodies were excellent. I would highly recommend Terra Firma & look forward to joining them again soon!
Night skies and great guides We had a great time on the Dark Skies Safari, I really enjoyed it and the knowledge of Georgia and Ged made it all the more fabulous! If you have a chance, book a tour with them!
Folklore Tour Well, what a fantastic treat! Dan, Ged and Georgia were great fun, entertaining us along the way with lots of fables, fairies and flora. My 6 and 7 year olds especially liked seeing the castle and learning about the adventures of their great, great, great, great....grandmammy, Grace O’Malley, oh, and stumbling upon a real-life Leprechaun! They had a terrific time, as did we all. Thanks very much guys for a fantastic time!
Bangor Trail We did the Bangor trail last Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was pretty tough going for the last five k and Georgia was extremely helpful with motivation and m and m's. I'd highly recommend the guys to do this as it's a great achievement. Geds flapjacks were top not notch also. Thanks for a great day folks, Philip and Louise
The Bangor Trail I went on the Bangor Trail on Sunday. It was such an amazing experience and the day just flew by...the craic was so good I hardly noticed the midges 😊 Ged and Georgia are excellent guides, very informative and they took great care of us. I’d highly recommend Terra Firma. Looking forward to booking my next adventure with you guys!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Folklore Tour I went on a 2.5 hour folklore tour with my 14–year-old son and visiting brother with his children aged 6 and 7. We were all entertained, riveted and delighted by stories of Irish fairies by Dan, informed about old Irish roadside herbal remedies with demonstrations by Ged, fascinated by accounts of the life the Pirate Queen, Geanuaile - of particular interest to us, being O’Malleys. There was thematic music, magic, poetry from Georgia and many surprises. This trip and the many others facilitated by Terra Firma are not to be missed! I was on the Stargazing one too last year and it was wonderful.
AMAZING Guided Tour! A group of 17 were completing the 4 Peak Challenge and Ged and Georgia led the way for the Connacht leg. I cannot recommend them enough; they were so considerate, informative and fun. We are still talking about sphagnum moss weeks later! The views at the top were incredible but the guides made the experience even better.
Top Class Guides! We were lucky enough to land with Ged and Georgia as our tour guides up Mweelrea on part of our four peaks challenge. I couldn't recommend Terra Firma highly enough. Their knowledge of the local area and of the flora and fauna was second to none. Laughed a lot all the way up and down. Will be heading over to check out their other tours in the very near future! Thanks for the experience guys!
Excellent guides We went on a guided walk with Ged and Georgia in the Nephim Wilderness section of Ballycroy National Park, you couldn't ask for better guides. They were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about the area and it's flora. I couldn't recommend them more, I would love to go back sometime for one of their dark sky tours.
