“5 Star Experience”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

I have just come back from this 2 hour tour, it was fantastic. Tony is a wonderful guide who was full of knowledge and interesting insights into the Burren. His tour covered so many aspects: history, geography, archeology, botany with some poetry thrown in! Time and money well spent.

“A beautiful day with a warm and knowledgeable guy.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Thank you Tony for the vast wealth of knowledge you shared about The Burren and the surrounding areas. I was so impressed by your tour including your poetry monologues and your ease of moving from one area to the next. I enjoyed the pace - not too slow, yet not too fast.

“fantastic insights into a unique environment”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We spent 2 great hours with Tony Kirby exploring the magnificent Burren, and it was a highlight in a wonderful visit to Ireland. If we'd done a walk on our own, I'm sure we would have enjoyed the scenery, but Tony's extensive knowledge of the geology, history, flora and fauna of the area enhanced our visit immensely. He is charming, informative, amiable and passionate. I can't recommend this experience highly enough. The walk is not difficult, but does include some rough terrain (can't see the Burren without walking on rocks!), but there is no pressure to go fast.

“Heart of the Burren Walk”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Tony Kirby gives a fascinating guided walk of this wonderful landscape. Covering a diverse range of subject matter, Tony imparts near encyclopedic knowledge with flair, passion & great eloquence. Tony is as great a treasure as the magnificent Burren itself.

“Inspirational!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Tony is a true modern day Seanachie. His knowledge of history, flora, geology and poetry transform this walk through the Burren into a living museum. His genial and reflective nature are contagious as accepts questions and answers them with thoughtful consideration. The 2 things I took away from this experience that were directly a result of Tony more than the unique natural surroundings were
1) Always continue learning
2)Now I wish to learn more about the natural wonders in my own backyard
I am grateful for both
