Hiking Sligo

Owner & Guide: William Britton

William is the head honcho at Northwest Adventure Tours HQ and believes Sligo is second to none when it comes to natural beauty, local folklore and geographical treasures. When he is not guiding or planning adventures you will find him freediving, surfing or climbing along the coast of Sligo. Craic is a key word in the experiences that Northwest Adventure Tours and Williams approach to guiding offers. Enjoying the experience is key and this is what he aims to deliver. Fun Fact:  William can hold his breath for nearly 6 minutes.

Guide: Barry Hannigan

‘Donegal Barry’ as he is affectionly known is our chief mountain leader, guide and outdoor enthusiast. He lives and breathes mountains and hills and there isn’t much he couldn’t tell you about any of them. If Barry is guiding your trip you can be sure of the craic and more information and fun facts than you can shake a stick at. We may be a little biased but we reckon ‘Donegal Barry’ is the  best guide in the land.

Guide: Jack Kennedy

Jack is our legendary Stand up paddle guide.  He is an experienced water man and enjoys stand up paddle, surfing and freediving. We think he is part Merman and you will usually find him on the water or under it somewhere. His tours are always fun packed and his teaching skills are second to none.
