Eimear hails from Ballinasloe, Co. Galway and comes from a hospitality background, having spent many years working in her family’s hotel in the town. After studying Applied Languages in the University of Limerick, she moved to Köln, Germany where she spent a year fully immersed in German language and culture. Eventually, the hustle and bustle of big city life became too much and the green fields of Ireland started calling once more. Eimear relocated to Galway City in search of an exciting new career and Hillwalk Tours was the perfect opportunity.
Eimear is the newest member of the Product Team at Hillwalk Tours. The team’s main priorities include walking routes and creating route notes for walkers, resolving any issues customers may experience when out on a trail and answering feedback when a walker returns home. Eimear finds the walking of new routes and the creation of new route notes really exciting and she hopes to be able to undertake some walks with her team in the future!
When the working day is done, Eimear loves to keep fit with cardio and weight classes in the gym. She thinks it’s very important to keep fit, especially when modern work can be sometimes sedentary in nature. During the summer months she enjoys early morning swims in Silver Strand and thinks they are the perfect way to energise yourself at the start of the day. Eimear is also a fan of all things crime. From podcasts, to TV shows, to thriller fiction novels, she finds the psychology behind it all fascinating. She is currently undertaking an online introduction course in criminal psychology in her spare time.
