Cailum Burke Hillwalk Tours

Cailum grew up in Doolin, a small but bustling village in County Clare. His grandparents have been running a Bed & Breakfast in Doolin since before he was born. His grandparents have taught him everything he knows about the tourism industry. As a child, if he wasn’t helping out in the family business, Cailum could be found exploring the fields and old roads around his village with his cousins, who all live nearby. This is something he still does to this day. Cailum graduated from NUIG with a Bachelor of Arts in English & Law. After working in his grandparent’s family-run B&B, local bars, and hotels throughout his life, and graduating from college, Cailum realised that the tourism industry is where his passion lies. Cailum loves creating experiences that make him happy, so to be able to do that for someone else is what originally drew him to Hillwalk tours.

As a Customer Experience Specialist, Cailum gets to plan unforgettable hiking holidays for people from all around the world. Creating moments that people will remember forever is one of the best perks of his role. Cailum really enjoys working with the passionate and friendly team at Hillwalk Tours. Getting to work with B&B owners, who just like his grandparents, invite people into their homes every day, makes him feel like he is at home!

Outside of work, Cailum enjoys traveling, photography, basketball, concerts, and amazing food. Cailum loves the idea of traveling all around Ireland, getting to see all the beautiful cliffs, beaches, and restaurants. Of course, he enjoys some hiking along the way! Joining Hillwalk Tours has given him the insight into all the amazing hiking holidays he has yet to plan.
