Fia Mountaineering runs both of the official Mountaineering Ireland Mountain Skills courses as well as bespoke navigation sessions that get you out independently in the Irish Mountains and beyond.

You will progress from merely being brought on someone else’s hike to going hiking yourself. On any of our courses you’ll take a huge step forward in your self-confidence, both on the mountains and back in the ‘real’ world.

Navigation is a life skill, and after these courses you’ll have it in spades.

 No better buchaille Cormac. I’d say you struggled to get your walks logged for the log book! I don’t know anybody who’s been to more hill tops in Ireland. Well done, the MCI are lucky to have you delivering these courses.

 Cormac is a wonderful instructor who patiently imparts his mountaineering knowledge and skills with ease. He finds out exactly what you wish to achieve and tailors the training accordingly, ensuring that you competently attain the skills to be confident in your new found independence. Having enjoyed the last two winters training in Scotland with Cormac, his attention to detail, good nature, and obvious love of the hills can only make for a great weekend no matter what the weather throws at you. I can highly recommend and I look forward to preparing for future adventures under his impeccable guidance.

 A highly (HIGHLY) experienced mountain provider. I know from my kayaking experience with him how remarkably patient and empowering he is as an instructor so I’m very happy to recommend his courses

 If you're thinking about a new adventure in your life, check this out! I can say from personal experience that you will have no better guide teaching you! Cormac is one hell of an amazing mountaineer, and a really great guy, too!! 
 Cormac has the patience of a saint and is ideally suited to teaching navigation. If you want to learn navigation properly go to Cormac

 You’d definitely be on my Post Apocalyptic Zombie-Defence Team! Seriously though, congrats and well deserved. The mountains will be a safer place with you around 🙂
