A SHORT FILM EXCERPT
A short excerpt from the Trek Ireland DVD of the Burren made by Jake Mac Manus and featuring local walking guide Tony Kirby.
The walking trail featured in this excerpt is located in the Burren National Park. The highlight of the trail is a remarkable hermitage set in mature native woodland.
A small group of hermit monks exiled themselves here in Early Christian times for greater communion with the other world. The site was also the focus of pilgrimage in the past.
Heart of Burren Walks leads groups to the hermitage. The hikes include incisive commentaries on the history, archaeology and folklore of the location..whilst also explaining why the hermitage is a heritage site of real national significance.
