Kerry Climb­ing

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - BUSINESS AWARDS 2018 -

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.
