Private guided walks and walking holidays

kind words from our members

I've been a member of Sneem Walking Club since 2016. My wife Michele and I found the Club an enjoyable and easy way to meet new friends when we moved to the village. We've seen so much of the amazing Kerry countryside since then too. I always look forward with excitement to the next Club outing.

Dave Fay

I'm so glad I joined Sneem Walking Club, which introduced me to so many wonderful friends and beautiful parts of Kerry. The company is always good and I have a great many fond memories of our walks and experiences. I'd recommend Sneem Walking Club to everyone who loves to walk & talk and see the hidden gems of places in Kerry.
