The heart of the Burren walks. I thought it was lovely to do something different. I thought Tony did very well. He knew what he was talking about. That is what I liked about him. He said everything well. He was lovely to work it. If it wasn’t for him I would not have seen those parts of west Clare.... More

Tony Kirby is an outstanding guide to the Burren—so knowledgeable and passionate about the environment, the flora and fauna, and the history of the place. I am doing research for a novel set in the Burren, and Tony went out of his way to accommodate my requests to visit certain locations that will figure in the story, and offered all... More

I cannot say enough about Tony. My wife, her parents, and I met Tony for a 2.5 hour walk through the Burren. Because my in-laws were older and because they showed a particular interest in the history and the wildlife of the Burren, Tony adapted the walk to their needs and interests. It was a true pleasure to be in... More

Tony gave us an excellent tour of the Burren. We were a group of about 15, of all ages, old and young. He is passionate about the Burren and very well informed on all aspects of Burren life. His interpersonal skills were excellent and his delivery was very engaging.

I recently worked with Tony Kirby on the GeoParks Life Universal Access Programme promoting accessibility for people with disabilities. He was our guide on this project. He toured us around different areas of the Burren including The Cliffs of Moher, Fanore Beach, the Burren National Park (including Father Ted's House!), Ailwee Caves, and a number of ring forts in the...

A few weeks ago we joined Tony in his walk through the Burren. It was a fascinating journey through time and space, showing us why Burren is such a unique place in term of its geology, flora, fauna, archeology and habitats. Its striking, austere beauty hides many secrets which Tony reveals with a great enthusiasm and passion, making the whole... More

It's now a week since we joined Tony as part of a group of seven for a guided walk in the Burren, and it is definitely one of the highlights of our holiday on the western seaboard. Tony has a wealth of knowledge of the landscape and its history which he imparts with great aplomb, peppered with good humour. He... More

Joined Tony Kirby on the last walk of the season Sunday 31st August with my two daughters. He brightened up a wet and windy day with a very entertaining and informative walk in the Burren that lasted over two hours which we all enjoyed and was great value.

Tony Kirby gave us a splendid guided tour of the Burren. He has a wealth of knowledge of the area, its history and flora and fauna. He was able to keep all 5 members of my family interested, including my 15 year old son-and that is not easy. We could have tried to hike it alone but would have missed... More

I have a great interest in Irish history and Geography and as a photographer, I am inspired by the landscape. I knew the natural habitats of the West of Clare held it's own incredible beauty, having traveled there a number of times previously but Tony's tour trumped all that had gone before. With his knowledge, enthusiasm, passion and incredible ability... More
