Roisin Gillen Hillwalk Tours

Roisin is originally from Co. Fermanagh in the north of Ireland. She grew up in the rural countryside, surrounded by the lakes and natural beauty which Fermanagh offers. She moved to Scotland at the age of 18 to study and spent a year in Granada, Spain as part of her degree. Exploring the mountains and coastal areas of Spain was a great experience but it also made her appreciate the amazing landscape here in Ireland! Hillwalk Tours caught her eye as it promotes Irish tourism in its most natural form. It also gives her the chance to use her language skills and reach out to customers of different nationalities.

Her role in Hillwalk Tours is Sales & Customer Support Advisor, hence she is the first point of contact for many customers who are interested in booking a hiking tour with us. She is part of a multicultural sales team which is great for our customers as we can offer advice in lots of different languages! She mainly works with English and Spanish-speaking customers. In her role she strives to make sure all the customers’ needs are met and to ensure they have an unforgettable experience with Hillwalk Tours.

Roisin comes from a musical family and has been singing at weddings with her Mum and sister from a young age. She also plays the flute. In her spare time she loves to listen to the musicians in Galway, both in the bars and on the streets. She enjoys road trips and exploring new places – she is currently working on a Wild Atlantic Way bucket list!
