My sister and I hiked up Devil’s Ladder to Carrauntoohil on a rainy and windy day, but our guide Piaras made the day fly by. He was funny, knowledgeable, and interested in helping out when it came to local recommendations for food and drink. Hiking is always fun, but Kerry Climbing made the logistics easy and the actual hike a blast. They are definitely the best guides in town!

Absolutely brilliant experience! What a memorable and challenging but great fun day. The elements were against us – Rain hail sleet wind – the lot – but the excellent guidance of Piaras and Orlaith (who at the age of 12 was on her 50th ascent) kept us encouraged and safe throughout. Already looking forward to booking with Kerryclimbing for a new adventure in 2021. Thankyou for a great day.

Piaras was an excellent guide up the mountain, a fountain of knowledge about the area and Carrauntoohil. Louise and I absolutely loved it, an experience we will never forget and would recommend everyone to do. Thank you Piaras!

This waterproof mid height boot (they are also available in high and low ankle options as well as a men’s version). It offers excellent ankle support
