Sadly we ended up on a 40+ Healy tour, which dropped us off at farm. Since only two of us got off, we were hopeful, but, the next bus dropped another 25+ people for the same tour. Half of the crowd was young "adults" more interested in horsing around than listening. Listening was difficult, as there was no microphone, and... More

I am studying in Galway for the semester and this was the first tour that my friends and I decided to do. That was about three months ago, in January, and it is still by far my favorite tour. We used Lally Tour Company from Galway City and they give you the option to stop at the Connolly farm for... More

Arrived unexpected not having booked, absolutely no problem. Darragh our guide was a great guy with all the local knowledge. Views were breathtaking a truly enjoyable experience. Having finished the walk took a stroll into the chocolate factory. Kasha and her team were inside busy making chocolate but yet took the time to come and chat. Chocolates are yummie, you... More

I did this tour in May 2013 and it blew me away with how personable, genuine and fantastic every single member of the team was. The tour of the family farm was so wonderful, John was so knowledgable, fun and cheeky! Despite my epic hangover from the night before I thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt something along the way as...

We enjoyed a wonderful day out with John our guide, truly a beautiful place to visit. It was a very homely and lovely experience during the walk up and at the Granny's farmhouse cottage. After a long and pleasant hike up to the rocks, some tea and highly appetizing cakes would await you at the cute little Granny house.

My girlfriends and I spent one week in Ireland in mid-October. The tour of the Connelly property and amazing cake and tea that followed was hands down the best part of my trip. The personal attention, history, and breathtaking views are unbeatable. I would highly recommend this and I hope to return.

Though we arrived at the Burren Wild Tours on a Healy bus tour, the highlight of the trip, I must say, was John Connelly! I must've been the 1000th tourist on his property but that doesn't give him a reason to skimp on his enthusiasm about the place. It was a very homely and lovely experience during the walk up... More

We had a wonderful 2.5 hour walk with our tour guide John Connelly. We were not sure what to expect but we were pleasantly surprized with our experience. The scenery was breath-taking, the company pleasant and the information with stories very interesting. Highly recommend this walk. See pictures.

In the past I have avoided guided tours for fear of getting slowed down in a large group, or being subjected to wiki-facts from an over-rehearsed guide. However, when planning a visit to the Burren, we decided to take a risk and book the 2 hr guided tour with Burren Wild Tours, and hope that a walk in the Clare... More
