Attraction details
Owner description: Footfalls Walking Holidays was founded in 1994 by Christopher and Teresa Stacey. We wanted to share our love and interest in the great outdoors with others so we started guiding individuals and groups in the Wicklow Mountains. Before long we were getting requests from our customers to see more of Ireland than just Wicklow and also do self-guided tours. Today we have expanded to where we are offering guided and self-guided tours to almost every corner of Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the Lake District. Despite out growth almost all of our tours are guided by us, Christopher and Teresa, to guarantee that personal touch.

Throughout your life there may be a handful of times you meet someone or something that has a lasting impression on you! My experience with Footfalls Walking Holidays was one of those times.Christopher and his team were absolutely wonderful. No detail was left undone, all aspects of the trip were handled professionally and without fault. You will have no better guide than Christopher. Just remember to bring your sense of humour, because if you can't have a laugh or two along this road of life whats the point of carrying on! Well done Footfalls, I will be back to your fair Isle!

I had a strong desire to visit Ireland these last few years, after many trips to England to visit relatives. We both love walking and in doing research on walking vacations, I was fortunate to find Footfalls Walking Holidays. Chris and Teresa were very responsive and helpful, as we endeavoured to select the trip that best fit our needs and fitness level.
We absolutely loved the Cork & Kerry trip and have plans to return as soon as possible, to experience other parts of this beautiful country. Chris shared with us a fabulous corner of Ireland and we were fortunate enough to have wonderful weather the whole week, other than 20 minutes of showery weather on our first day visiting Dursey Island. The whole week more than exceeded our expectations in every aspect and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone in our group - a wonderful group of people. Highly recommended - a fantastic week!

Just finished a great week hiking with Christopher. Each day was different and I felt like each hike was tailored to our particular group. It was lovely to see a company run by family. Christopher, Teresa, Philip and Sarah were all such delightful people. Ireland provides such a wonderful background for every hike that you simply can’t beat the beauty that surrounds you. Add wonderful guides and a great group of new friends to the mix and you can’t go wrong. Highly recommend Footfalls for any hiking adventure. Thanks again, Christopher, for a wonderful week. And give my best to HQ!

Hope to be back again,
Marty

Christopher and Teresa put together a wonderful guided tour, from the accommodations to picking trails that are right for the fitness level of the group, including ratcheting them up to keep a fit group challenged and interested. Everyone was able to keep their own pace and no one felt neglected. Chris's knowledge of the area, its history and culture were a bonus. Just be sure to ask him about the ghost story and be prepared to laugh.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write us a lovely review, we really appreciate it. We also enjoyed the tour and it was nice to be able to step outside the itinerary and do a little extra walking.
Thank you once again and we do hope that someday soon you may come back to us and do some more walking.
Kind regards,

Thank you, Teresa for arranging our guided hike with David Lawton. He was prepared to lead a multi-generational group of five women. Also was knowledgeable of Saint Kevin's Monastic site and the parks natural environment. His attention to details, and ability to answer an myriad of questions and appreciation for nature made him an outstanding guide!
