Mathieu Pegeot Hillwalk Tours

Mathieu is originally from eastern France, not far from where France, Switzerland and Germany’s borders all meet. His adventurous spirit led him to study in England and work in Spain before driving the American roads on a 17,000 mi road trip and hitting the trails of no less than 28 National Parks. This is when he realised the importance of fulfilling his dreams and decided to move to Ireland – a country that has always fascinated him – in the hope of combining his love for wide-open spaces with his marketing background. Mathieu found Hillwalk Tours and his dream came true!

As a Content Marketing Editor, Mathieu regularly creates – with his colleague Rebekka – the inspiring content you see on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages and the newsletters we send out. He also has a keen eye for creating attractive designs and enjoys sourcing scenic pictures, improving the website’s content and user experience and playing around with lines of code.

On his spare time, Mathieu is a regular half-marathon runner and can often be seen training around Galway Bay, getting ready for Connemarathon and Dingle Marathon – his two favourite running events. ‘Because nothing beats the scenery and sheep cheering you on!‘. He also enjoys attending hard rock and country/folk music events around Europe and brewing his own beer (if you are lucky, he might let you have a taste of his last batch of Irish stout!).
