Shirley Teskey - Wild Atlantic Walking Tours Guide

About Me

As a traditional herbalist, I have a special interest in Plants, Herbs and their uses. I have developed my own skincare range “Shirley’s Herbal Care” from organic herbs grown on our farm, specialising for those with eczema and psoriasis. I also have a keen interest in harvesting seaweed, which I dry for various uses. For several years I have been walking extensively throughout Ireland and the Canary Islands and am currently finishing my guiding training with Mountaineering Ireland.


Shirley is a native of County Limerick and has lived in Holland and Germany, and so has a working knowledge of both German and Dutch, as well as being fluent in English. She moved to Kenmare in 1987, and in 1999 set up her home at Rowandale Farm, just outside the town. Shirley is a riding instructor and trekking guide.
