Lovely looped walks... to suit all levels of fitness. Best visited in April for the flowers especially the Gentin, fabulous any time of the year. Beautiful views of Connemara on all walks.

We met Tony at the appointed place and he guided us for 2.5 hours through The Burren. His knowledge of the Burren, wildflowers, geology, history and Ireland was outstanding. Highly recommended.

Walking in the Burren was one of the must-do's for me on my recent trip to Ireland. I chose Mary Howard's Burren Guided Walks mainly because she was the only one of three walking companies who responded to my email enquiry. How lucky was I!...More
