Michelle Hughes is an International Mountain Leader and has traveled in Europe, Norway and Ireland. She enjoys teaching Mountain Leadership courses in Ireland and has a passion for Ireland and all its wonder; the music, the stories, the ancient Celtic beliefs, the 'craic' and even the weather! Michelle loves adventure and the outdoors, both of which have been an integral part of her working life for more than 20 years. She has hiked, climbed, kayaked and sailed the length and breadth of Ireland as well as far beyond.
Michelle's first major adventure was sailing a junk from Darwin to Singapore, however her ultimate adventure has been raising a family with husband Geo. After the birth of their second daughter, Michelle studied and qualified as a holistic therapist. During the winter months she practices as an Energy Practitioner--you can find out more about this while walking with her in Ireland.
Michelle is an upbeat and lively guide and will appeal to our clients during the featured walks along the Connemara coast. If you're lucky, Michelle might break out her fiddle and play an upbeat tune and encourage her group to join her in a song!
