‘July 2011, Hiking with Cliff for a week in Ireland. When packing, I thought it would rain, but it wasn’t bad at all, just one day with a little rain (I had brought my rain trousers and gaiters just in case but didn’t need them). Other than that a fantastic week with great hiking weather. With Cliff on Slieve Gullion, walked the Cooley Mountains and two days hiking in the Mourne Mountains. Cliff knows a lot about the area, history and Irish legends. With Cliff, you are in safe hands!’
Cliff & Louise,
We just arrived back in holland and we wanted to write to you straight away to tell you what a wonderful time we had and thank you for taking such good care of us. Already we are planning a long weekend in the Cooley mountains in September!
See you then!

Begin mei mooie wandelvakantie gemaakt met walkingholidayireland.
Kort, maar een geweldige ervaring en zeker een herhaling waard. Deze zomer gaan we nog een keer, dankzij de relatief goedkope overnachtingen en de betaalbare vluchten is dat goed te doen.
We maakten een prachtige wandeling vanuit Backrock over de Cooley Mountains naar Carlingford (18km) en we hebben vanuit Carlingford wandelingen van zo’n 8km gemaakt. Iedere dag prachtige vergezichten. Heerlijk gegeten in de fantastische Pub/restaurant Fitzpatrick’s en in Carlingfords Kingfisher Bistro.
Hadden deze keer geen auto gehuurd en dat bleek geen verkeerde beslissing. Met openbaar vervoer goed in Blackrock aangekomen, transfers naar wandelingen en luchthaven terug liepen feilloos. Perfecte, korte en niet al te zware wandelvakantie. Veel succes Cliff en Louise Wayenberg
Beste Cliff en Louise,
Dit was tot nu verreweg de BESTE WANDELVAKANTIE die we tot nu in IERLAND hebben gehad (het was onze 4e al!) SUPER georganiseerd tot in de puntjes.
We komen terug om hier nog veel meer te ontdekken.
Nogmaals BEDANKT voor je inzet.

We are already a few days at home and look back on a wonderful time in N. Ireland. The 500 + stunning photos have been downloaded (perhaps one of the reasons for our slow walking pace).
All B&Bs were excellent, good beds, nice breakfast, quiet location and very friendly and helpful hosts. It was very special to really meet none on the Moyle Way to the crossing of the B?? towards Ballycastle forest. We have had 2 wonderful meals in the Anzac restaurant in Ballycastle after two wonderful days walking. We crept under and climbing over obstacles well and nowhere went awry. The combination of your description and the map worked perfectly. Also only praise for “the Burn” & “Cul Erg” super cozy.
The last walk to P. Stewart was also brilliant. It was dry but windy insanely hard. We both partially hooded to walk on.
Yesterday was a magnificent walk, almost continuously in the rain, but with the great views and surroundings it was not a bother.
Again, it was a great experience for us, the friendliness and helpfulness of everyone, including yourself, made a great impression on us, thank you.
Best regards, R & H Brinkman

Although the weather did not cooperate we still had a fantastic time. The walking distances were perfect. The maps and direction were great and the Bed and Breakfast’s you selected were outstanding. Our favourite of all being “The Burn” in Cushendall . Nuala was the perfect host. Cliff that was our first walking vacation but will not be the last.
