KERRY Climbing is a specialist service and a leading provider of guided ascents of Carrauntoohil and mountains all over Ireland. This includes low level walks, rock climbing courses and a variety of instructional mountain courses overseen by qualified and highly experienced guides and instructors. In a county like Kerry, with its magnificent mountain terrain, this is an excellent business that allows for inexperienced climbers to learn the necessary skills needed to traverse and enjoy the mountains. Kerry Climbing also organise corporate charity and team building events and has offered its support to numerous adventure races. It also hosts its own Mountain Challenge event ‘Killarney Ultimate High Peaks Challenge’ which is a sell-out event. This business plays a key role in promoting Kerry and the south west as the adventure capital of Ireland. Kerry Climbing helps to promote this through its invigorating, informative and safe adventure experience. The business is eight years up and running and has a staff base of 20 (and over) depending on the level of events scheduled. It’s also a business with a strong personal attachment to the service it provides, as its team members are all passionate about the mountains and great outdoors. TripAdvisor has for the past five consecutive years ranked Kerry Climbing as the number one of all outdoor activities in Killarney, and this year Kerry Climbing was awarded a place in TripAdvisor’s Hall of Fame. Kerry Climbing was also given the responsibility of guiding Taoiseach Leo Varadkar on his high profile climb of Carrauntoohil this summer. Kerry Climbing is a proud supporter of the Reeks Mountain Access Forum. This is a fantastic addition to Kerry’s adventure tourism sector.
