Great weekend escape. Did the overnight hike in the Comeragh mountains with our excellent guide Dave. It is a perfect way to take a break from the day-to-day and reconnect with nature while getting exercise, learning lots about mountaineering and meeting new and fun people. All levels of experience and fitness were catered for. Strongly recommended!

I did the Comeragh Expedition weekend with Mark on 14-15th May and it was a great experience. He was a super guide, great company and craic, and looked after us all so well. We were very lucky to have had a super team, who also made it a great friendly and fun experience. Wild Summits is a great way to learn how to navigate our wonderful mountain ranges and have fun at the same time. I would highly recommend Wild Summits, Mark and his team, if you want to get back to nature, have fun, learn something new and recharge the batteries.
