His warmth and interest in the group was evident at once.We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day which was a bonus, especially this summer!

Any day trip to the Burren with a hike would be a great time. However, going on a 2 hour walk with Tony added so much to the experience. He shares stories that are a mix of geology, history, archaeology, environmentalism, nature, poetry and Irish culture while guiding small groups through gorgeous scenery. Yes you could learn some of on... More

I was so lucky to have such a wonderful walk with Tony! His passion for the area is incredible - he has a wealth of knowledge and shares it in a way that is both informative and interesting. We had a very sunny morning and took an absolutely beautiful walk! I spent three weeks in Ireland and this is absolutely... More

Since meeting Tony some years ago, I try to take in a walk with him at least one time in the year: every time is different, every walk I learn some more about my native county and now am able to identify things like the shy Eyebright, the sunny Mountain Aven or the nodding Harebell. This of course, in addition... More

We were very lucky the rain put everyone off except the 2 of us and there was no question of not doing the guided walk and then the sun came out! Tony really knows his stuff he covered the flora in great detail + the geology and some archeology. Really excellent.

Really enjoyed our very informative and worthwhile walk through the Burren. We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day to enjoy this stunning and tranquil landscape. Our guide Tony's passion for nature, history and geology really brought this unique place to life. Was made to feel instantly welcome to Co. Clare. Thoroughly rewarding experience, highly recommended.

The walk my family took with Tony gave me a greater understanding of the entire Burren landscape and was the highlight of my trip to western Ireland. The man knows his stuff, but I believe his greatest strength is his ability to combine various perspectives--historical, botanical, poetic--into a tour that turned into a compelling account of what I was seeing...

A very instructive walk in the heart of the Burren with an erudite, dynamic, and poetic guide. (A few only can pretend holding head to à Belgian. Tony is one of them.) I loved it.

We had booked this tour as part of a stay in the Old Ground Hotel in Ennis and were enthralled by Tony's in-depth knowledge of the flora and fauna of the Burren. He has a warmth which in engaging and enticed everyone in our group to speak about how we arrived at his tour, our own preconceptions of the Burren... More
