Unique landscape large areas of which can be explored from a carefully parked care. We found we could easily walk whatever distance we chose and always a great views which can include the sea.

The Burren is a fascinating area that is not to be missed. You can walk around the Burren yourself and enjoy the out of this world landscape on your own but if you really want to understand and fully appreciate what you are looking at then you should consider a walking tour with Shane Connolly.

We did the easy green walk with relatives and enjoyed the changing terrain, plant life along the way to the tea house. It's amazing how the wildlife changes along a short walk. It was peaceful and quiet too with few other walkers. The trail was great except for a couple small wet areas.

During our visit to the Burren we stopped at this prehistoric historical monument. It reaffirmed our newfound knowledge of how historically significant Ireland is. It appears that the 'monument' was actually a burial site, and is a short walk from the road. Numerous signs explain the history of the site and appear in many languages. Should you be interested in... More

I'm not sure of the history of the Burrens, however, the area is a "MUST SEE" in Ireland. We took some incredible photographs in the area....the ocean was really wild.

We did a 3 hour walking tour of the Burren as arranged by our hotel. Our tour guide brought us from the town to the Burren and supplied us with walking sticks. He went through all the history of the Burren and showed us the flowers and fauna. We were lucky to get a beautiful day and could see Galway... More

Shane guided my husband and I along with seven other visitors up Black Head Mountain. In our four hour walk, we certainly got the full Ireland experience-- it rained, hailed, the sun shone, and the wind blew so hard I could barely stand up! That said, every step was worth it to see the diverse flora of the region that... More

He told us all about the botany, geology, history - and with great dry humour. The uphill walk is not for the faint-hearted though!

Shane is quite a guy! His humor, knowledge of history, animals and plants was great. We went up Blackhead with him and enjoyed the walk. The walk could have been a bit more rougher and longer for us, but we loved it and are still talking about it sometimes.
