Discovered Tony and his "Heart of Burren Walks" while planning our trip to Ireland. Our hope was to visit St.Coleman's Well and I wrote Tony about the possibility of a "tailor made" walk to this part of the Burren. Right from the first email response, and his openness to this request, it was clear that we would be in for a treat. Tony was not only open to leading this walk, but enthusiastic as well.
The walk was excellent in every way, from the clear directions of where to meet, to the great suggestion for lunch and everything in between. Tony captures, in its essence, the "heart" of the Burren --- a complex and rich amalgam of flora, fauna, natural history and human history, rich agriculture and devastating famine, politics, faith, mysticism, poetry --- which he passionately and creatively weaves together in a rich landscape of storytelling and knowledge. Tony creates for his guests an unforgettable experience of this magical and luminal space. Tony's passion for this place is infectious and am certain that after a walk with him you will find yourself, like me, recalling a something he said or pointed out weeks after -- rising surprisingly like a Burren turlough in your mind.
We are grateful to Tony for being such an important part of our trip. Coming to this part of the Burren was a dream fulfilled and to be guided with such passion and knowledge was pure gift. Many thanks, Tony for your wisdom, wit, openness and patience.
