I took a walking tour with Tony Kirby during the wonderful Irish summer of 2013. Tony was intrigued with our group as I was with my parents (age 70), husband (age 45) and son (age 15), 3 generations! Tony catered for all our interests, young and old! The pace of the walk was perfect with great insights into local heritage,... More

Highly recommended! Tony is a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who knows every nook and cranny of the Burren. You will learn a lot on this walk - Tony is an expert on the flora and fauna of the area as well as its history and its archaeological sites. You will also enjoy it - Tony has a very nice... More

Tony's walking tour of the Burren was recommended to us by the hostess of our B&B. (We were very fortunate that she told us about him, because unfortunately his tour is not yet in Rick Steves' Ireland tour book). We were leaving the area that day so we had no time to pre-book with him. We just showed up at... More

I've been out walking on The Burren with Tony twice, and both experiences were stellar, even existential! His profound knowledge of the landscape, its plants and wildlife, its environmental context, and its history are impressive, but it is his love for, and spiritual connection to, this remarkable place that are so powerful. He is incredibly generous sharing this with the... More

I spent 20 days in Ireland in July and really learned a lot about the country. The Heart of Burren Walk was a highlight. Tony Kirby was extremely knowledgeable and fun to hike with. I learned about the Hazel nut problem and was able to really experience the Burren that I had heard so much about. He also told us... More

We found Tony Kirby through a cousin we met at a family reunion. A walker herself, she couldn't say enough good things about Tony and his tours. So, on impulse, we signed up and started out with Tony. I found out how little I knew about the hazel wood and wildflowers great and small. Most important, Tony was patient and... More

Tony Kirby recently led a walk in the Burren for a small group with my company Wayfaring Women Tours. Our tour lasted 9 days in Ireland, and our walk with Tony was one of the highlights of the entire trip. Tony's Burren walks offer a deeply meaningful cultural, environmental, and spiritual perspective on this unique region in Ireland. It's rare... More

It's hard to add to what has already been said about this walk and Tony himself - I agree with everyone about how good this was and how informative it was for all ages (we were a family of four - 2 kids ages 14 and 12). It really is for all ages and levels of hiking ability - there... More

My family (husband, 2 daughters in their 20's) and I were privileged to experience a walk in the Burren with Tony Kirby, which we booked based on previous reviews on TripAdvisor. I was expecting a lot from the walk and wasn't disappointed. The two hour private walk flew by--it seemed like ten minutes. Tony's knowledge of the plant life appears... More

As one of Ireland's new generation of young emigrants, I had the pleasure of taking Tony's tour of the Burren with my mother during a recent trip home in July. It was the highlight of our visit to the west of Ireland, as Tony's extensive knowledge of this unique region of the country was at once impressive, entertaining and inspirational.... More
