I have taken many walks with Shane over the last 10+ years, and he is unfailingly terrific. His knowledge of the fauna, flora and history is amazing. In September 2014 we had a large group in Ballyvaughan for my wedding, and Shane took a group out for a Burren walk, and everyone was thrilled. At then end of the walk... More

Walked with Shane Connoly in May 2015. Loved it. Loved it. (did I say, "I loved it"?) The other commenters adjacent hit the marks quite well, so I'll just ditto them. But here's the thing, in spades. In America, we are rarely if ever able to go on an interpretive hike with a self employed, truly independent type. This puts... More

We climbed up Black Head Mountain with a guide organised by the hotel. He was very knowledgable and entertaining. A great experience,. You need good shoes but not boots as the ground is remarkably dry. We lucky as it was a clear day. Great value for money!

The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was a great education session but felt more like a conversation. Most enjoyable.

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. As others have stated, Shane... More

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
