Beautiful wildflowers among the stones.

Our family enjoyed the easy walk to the portal tomb. The wildflowers made the experience special. We purchased jewelry from the Celtic craftsman.

What an incredible guide. Informative, knowledgable, smart, witty, highly opinionated, Irish. We wish we could have spent the whole day with him.

We took a four hour walk with Shane in September 2015. We had no idea what to expect and much to our shame could not answer most of his questions about the flora growing there.

Excellent views all around, and a very interesting place to visit. An easy walk from a nearby parking lot to the 5000 year old burial site. This is a must see!

Lovely views, great photo spot...but as far as the actual ancient tomb you can find better ones in Ireland. Still--the Burren is magical!

Visited this interesting site in September 15. The whole area is spectacular and the site is very well set out even including a friendly gardian. Interesting signs help you understand what happened at the site over the years.
