We believe the outdoors should be enjoyed with good food, good company and good craic while taking in the beautiful scenery we have in Ireland.

Well we are wild, hairy, smelly and would eat anything (ahem…one is a bit hairier and smellier than the other)! And, of course, we love the outdoors.
As wild goats, we believe that the outdoors is for everyone no matter what your experience, skill or fitness level. You don’t need to know what crampons or carbiners or mini-mals are to get up a mountain or enjoy the sea!
To that end, we started the Wild Goat Adventure Company to help people who are outdoor-curious become acquainted with the many varied fun experiences you can have outdoors.

We have each been in the position where we have lost our potential outdoor exploration buddies to mortgages, babies, golf and foreign lands. For anybody in that position, our activities are designed for you!!


Chris is the “Grizzly Goat” with over 30 years of experience taking groups on hikes as well as some pretty impressive “tasty” climbs and hikes of his own in Scotland, the French Alps, the Pyrenees and the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.

His unique guiding style is welcoming to even the slowest or most nervous of walkers and before you know it, you look back on the path you just walked and realise you have done a pretty hairy and impressive hike on one of Ireland’s toughest routes!

Chris is a qualified mountain leader, mountain skills instructor and member of mountain rescue with the added important skills of guitar player and story teller for those camping weekends.


Katie is probably the “Giddy goat”, she brings her own particular brand of enthusiasm for all things land or sea (or sky for that matter), and a love of good, nutritious, tasty food to fuel the activities. Always an outdoors enthusiast, she regularly hikes, climbs, surfs, SUPs (stand up paddle boards), kayaks, cycles….and anything else put on offer.

After a brush with auto-immune she has become very interested in nutrition and is happy to provide all manner of delicious meals and snacks for food intolerances or diets, just ask!

She is currently undergoing the training for mountain leader qualification and has been hiking regularly for years at home and abroad.
