Onwards & Upwards with Adam Harrington

Hi I'm Adam!

Having grown up in Glengarriff, I have trekked these trails countless times, while I know many of the area’s hidden gems and captivating stories, and I am always discovering new vistas and trails!

I like to make sure every hiker feels welcomed and supported throughout the journey. Everyone has their own pace and comfort level, and I try to tailor each hike accordingly. 

I like to create a warm and friendly atmosphere and a sense of camaraderie among the hiking group. Whether you’re a seasoned hiker or a beginner, I’m excited to show you Glengarriff’s remarkable landscapes!

Would highly recommend this Guided Hike up Sugarloaf with Adam, he made the trek an ease. He was so calm, kind and knowledgeable with just a wonderful energy and the views were breath taking. What an amazing day!!"
