Little Oxplorers



Let me introduce myself

My love of adventures started young when myself, my sister, an army of cousins and Harry the sheepdog used to roam my grandparents farmland in rural Tipperary, returning home in time for dinner with rosy cheeks and scraped knees after an exhilarating day exploring. These experiences gave me the confidence to search for bigger adventures, as well as igniting a deep love for nature which I still have to this day.

I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world in search of adventure and have climbed mountains, jumped out of planes, hiked glaciers and navigated mind-boggling landscapes. But my biggest adventure so far has been raising three boys. And with all adventures, it has had some unexpected twists and turns. 

Ten years of parenting has taught me that you don’t have to sit still just because your brood grows, you’ve just got to get everyone out the door – this is often the hardest part! I started Little Oxplorers to share our love for adventures and find a like-minded community. And guess what? They are right here in front of you. 

Keep adventuring.


My Vision

This is just the beginning.

I want to support outdoor and physical activity in local communities across Oxford and beyond. We have some big plans to put into action so watch this space! 


Fancy buying me a ko-fi?

Want to support my work?

Feel free to buy me a (strong!) coffee, it will help fuel my adventures near and far. Support can come in many form though: sharing my website in your school WhatsApp group or liking a Facebook post is equally appreciated.
