Sarah McNamara Hillwalk Tours

Sarah grew up in lovely Limerick City, spending every summer in the scenic seaside town of Kilkee, Co Clare. Little did she know that being dragged as a child on the ritual Dunlicky cliff walk, in rain or shine, more times than she can remember, would instil a lasting love of the outdoors and the sea. University is what first brought her to Galway and, like many others, she knew that she was always going to return to this city. After a round the world trip and 5 years working in Dublin this wish came true. Given her background in Customer Insights and love of hiking, the opportunity to work with Hillwalk Tours was something she could not ignore.

As Product Manager, Sarah oversees the team tasked with maintaining our current tours to our high standards, as well as setting up exciting new routes in order to continuously create experiences that make people happy. The Product Team use direct customer feedback to make improvements wherever possible and all these suggestions and ideas mean that every day at work is interesting!

Sarah is a member of the Galway Walking Club and spends her Sundays hiking in the hills and mountains in beautiful Connemara, her favourite place in the world. She is also extremely passionate about open water swimming and takes part in many races and endurance challenges. To relax she enjoys watching sport with friends and family, in particular Munster Rugby and the Irish soccer team.
