Northwest Sherpa Tours



"Thanks to Martin, our guide for the trip of a lifetime." ★★★★★

"Best Tour Ever! Thanks to Martin, our guide for the trip of a lifetime. Martin went above and beyond to make this a trip the four of us would never forget. We asked him to put together a tour plan that got us outdoors, away from the crowds, and close to nature. He is a wealth of knowledge and was there along side us hiking the countryside to see each site. This is definitely the way to see Ireland."

"I cannot recommend Martin, the Northwest Sherpa enough."   ★★★★★

"Our superb guide Martin, with his low-key sense of humor, was full of historical, cultural and mythical information. We spent the entire day viewing unusual sights with incredible stories. On our morning walks, Martin seemed to just know when we needed a rest too, and instantly whipped out the flask and cookies. We were lucky with the good weather for most of our trip and the beauty of the Irish countryside was stunning. I cannot recommend Martin, the Northwest Sherpa enough."

"I cannot recommend the Northwest Sherpa enough." ★★★★★

"I booked the Glenveagh National Park Day Tour with a colleague. The tour was everything we had hoped it would be. Packed with lovely sights and experiences, tailored to our interests and led by a pleasant considerate and knowledgeable Martin. Not only did he show us around the incredible Glenveagh Castle, he also took us to some less well known but equally impressive sights like the old Dunlewey church and an outstanding nearby waterfall. I hope he enjoyed our company as we did his."

"This was an experience we'll never forget." ★★★★★

"This was an experience we'll never forget. Martin was an excellent wealth of knowledge for us and a wonderful guide to have showing us around. We saw countless treasures along our way around the northern coast between Dublin and Galway. Our 8-day tour was made easy by Martin's planning and time management. We loved the cups of tea Martin made us using his Kelly kettle at some amazing viewing points, along with the great recommendations he gave us for dinner and live traditional Irish music. We had such a good time with him and will definitely return."

[Martin] made our trip a 5 star experience in every way." ★★★★★

"What an amazing walking tour my husband and I had with our two friends. On day one, Martin took us up Mount Errigal. We couldn't believe the crystal clear view from the top. Martin was so thorough leaving no room for error. We felt at all times that we were in good hands. He was right to suggest we climb Errigal on the first day, as the weather the next day was not so accommodating. For this reason, Martin recommended swapping Glenveagh's Bridal Path for Ards Forest Trail. It was surprisingly dry under the trees and Martin showed us a neat hut to have our picnic. He made our trip a 5 star experience in every way."        Ernest Webber 

[Martin] was personable, flexible and knowledgeable. ★★★★★

"We took a three-day tour from Dublin to Donegal with Martin. He was delightful and a pleasure to work with. He was personable, flexible and knowledgeable. Look no further if planning a private tour around Ireland. He showed us so many wonderful places and brought the history to life for us. He also recommended quaint little pubs where we sampled local beers and enjoyed some of the best chowder we've ever had."

"The pacing of the day was perfect for our family". ★★★★★

"Martin shared his vast knowledge of local and Irish history, archeology, religions, agriculture, ecology and culture with us while walking from St. Colmcille's birthplace to Glenveagh Castle. The pacing of the day was perfect for our family and we loved trying the few samples of local cuisine which Martin brought along. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our tour."
