Our family of 2 adults and 2 teens did this walk one morning in July. Another family was on the walk as well. We met in the church parking lot in Ballyvaughan (there's only 1 church so you can't miss it!). Then we followed him about 6 miles to Blackhead Mountain and parked right on the side of the road....

We booked this tour on recommendation from our hotel and am so glad we went. It quickly became a highlight of our tour through Ireland. Shane took us up Black Head Mountain as the weather was permissive. Shane is a excellent tour guide with a quick wit and dry humor that left us laughing the entire time. Keep in mind... More

Shane Connolly was our guide for a fascinating trip through the Burren. With Shane's knowledge of the area, its history, and folklore, the link from the past to the present came to life. The Burren is a truly amazing location that with the insight of Shane gave great background to the Irish and their past.

If you go late in the evening you'll be alone and you'll have the pleasure to have the place for yourself. If the weather is misty, even better. I took my granddaughter (5 years ols) and she really liked it.

If you're into history you'll love this. The scenery is ok, I would just go here because it's on the way to the Cliffs of Moher.

This area of The Burren is fascinating. I was trying to imagine what it must have been like to live here 5000 years ago.

Lovely drive....take your time to enjoy the views and to drive safely on the corkscrew roads. Great route to discover some of Ireland's 40 shades of green... Old ruins, castles, shades of green and we even captured a rainbow! Glorious first day driving in Ireland. Recieved the best advise..... Keep to the left and stay out of the ditches! Rock... More
