We were so lucky to have wonderful weather for our walk with Shane. He is a wealth of knowledge and has a great quirky sense of humour. The flowers were in bloom and we saw Irelands orchids for the first time. The highlight was being at the top of Black head and having a nip of Jameson in a stone... More

We have been surching for the big Dülmen with navigation. As we reached our destination there was nothing. We looked around and then we saw that little stone in the backyard. It's just so tiny it isn't worth to spend a minute there. Even the cows go through the fence and eat the grass around the stone. We were a... More

Our B & B host set us up with Shane Connelly. It was arranged to meet him in a parking lot, where a number of others would also join up. There were 3 couples and Shane. He asked us as a group what everybody was interested in: Botony, geology and history. Based on that he took us up to Black... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience exploring the magical Burren - it is otherworldly... in particular, visiting the area where the Poulnabrone Dolmen (portal tomb) is located. On your walk from the ample and easy to reach carpark, the historical society has done an excellent job of providing several information points where you can travel through time to learn about the...

Want a challenge? This is the place to do it. Winding at times and oft times steep but worth it. The view is amazing. Leave plenty of time to get off the grounds if it is getting dark! :)

The Burren is a wonderful place to see unusual countryside and rock formations. We loved our visit and our photos are outstanding. Definitely worth the trip!

The Burren fascinates me -- I love looking at it and driving through it, but it was a relief to get off those cow-path roads and take a good walk and see the Dolmen, which is older than the Pyramids!

The dolmen dates to 3000 BC and is small but important historically. Botanically and geologically the Burren is unique.
