Originally from Co. Kilkenny, I have been living in this area for the past 13 years and spend alot of my time hiking around these hills, I could walk this area blindfolded, it is such a special place for me.
Since 2016, I have been working as a Yoga & Meditation Teacher, since studying in Rishikesh, India. Yoga to me is more than a physical practice, but rather a lifestyle. I am particularly passionate about nature and enjoy guiding groups on mindful walking experiences, allowing us to connect with the sacred land around us here in Ireland.
With energy healing an important part of my life, I have also trained as a Reiki Master which adds a special element to my work with Yoga, Meditation and Nature.

Where you'll be

Howth is famous for the cliff walk.
While this trail is a worth while activity, it can be extremely busy with tourists and local hiking groups. Where I plan to bring you is a less well know trail where you will be immersed in the hidden treasures of native and tropical plants unique to this area, as well as enjoying views of the Irish sea and Dublin City.

This experience was truly one-of-a-kind! Katie is kind, caring, warm and a great conversationalist. I found her meditation and mindful nature walk such a unique and effective way to center myself and connect with my surroundings. The area of Howth we explored was one I definitely wouldn’t have found on my own, and ended with a beautiful hilltop view of the town below as well as the sea and Ireland’s Eye beyond. Highly recommend this experience for the inward-turning traveler!

This is an awesome experience if you want to get away from the busy city life and tourist traps. Katie took us on a lesser known hiking path that was quite nice, where she guided us through meditation and mindfulness. The views are beautiful once we got to the top. I would absolutely do this again when I’m in Dublin the next time.
