Amy Flaherty Hillwalk Tours

Amy hails from County Clare on the West Coast of Ireland, although she has spent lots of time in Donegal and Galway too when she was younger! Her love of travel led her to study culture, history and languages in university. Work and study stints in Spain, Ballinskelligs, Dublin and Limerick, among other places, nurtured and furthered her love for adventure and exploration. She has worked in copywriting, translation, teaching, design and administration… she likes a challenge! Amy joined Hillwalk Tours because she wanted to become part of a team that curates memorable and sustainable experiences for people from all over the world!

Her role as Customer Experience Specialist with Spanish involves engaging with customers and suppliers on all aspects of the Hillwalk Tours experience; trails, accommodation, directions, itineraries and much more! As a member of the Customer Experience team, she works alongside her colleagues to ensure that both our customers and our entire team end their day happy! Sustainability, supporting local businesses, and investing in experiences and not consumption and materialism are key elements which she finds really important.

Outside of work, Amy enjoys cooking delicious vegan meals, painting, candle-making, a good book, and, of course, hiking and exploring! There’s nothing more rewarding than discovering a hidden natural gem, a cosy haunt or a deserted beach- of which there are plenty in Ireland! She’s also a big fan of local markets and loves visiting the markets in Galway and Limerick when she can- along with supporting small local businesses, she believes it also strengthens community spirit!
