Tailor Made Walks

 Tailor made Burren walks are available all year round. They range from gentle one hour strolls to day-long strenuous hill walks. The menu of walks is featured hereunder. The half day long walk is the most popular one – lasting about two and a half hours. The walks can take place in the rugged interior of the National Park or along the Burren’s spectacular coastline. All the outings feature the limestone pavement, wild plants and monuments of the region. All our Burren walks are looped and off-road.

Whether your interests are farming, poetry, archaeology or geology, you name it, Tony Kirby's guided Burren walk has something for you and is equally interested in sharing anything you may have to add to the debate. His knowledge is far reaching, his delivery entertaining and his passion infectious.
