I have been making the outdoors both my work and passion for over 10 years now- and every activity brings new people, new places, and new discoveries. What keeps me smiling is discovering the depth of Ireland’s natural heritage- and how people take to it so positively. I have been working with community leaders in Aotearoa/New Zealand for years to understand our own indigenous identity.

He loves climbing and canoeing, always including some foraged food en route!

We hired bikes for 4 days from Far and Wild for a cycle tour. Lawrence was really helpful to us when we were planning our trip. He gave us advice and responded quickly to our questions.
The bikes we rented were good touring bikes. And Lawrence also lent us maps, tools, lights etc which was handy as we travelled to Derry on a Ryanair flight.
We had a great trip, exploring the Sperrin Hills and heading over for a night in Donegal. Looking forward to coming back!
