The Burren is a very strange area in Ireland, It is a direct contrast to the endless rollijng green fields and lush mountains you travel the Isle and see. Here the terrain is dry, rocky and desolate. You are certainly off the beaten path on...More
We spent a thoroughly enjoyable few hours with Shane, who knew an awful lot about the Burren. We told us about the civilisations over the years, pointing out sites of interest, as well as showing us the changing landscape. He has studied archeology and botany...More

Shane is an improv artist who's media includes a diverse knowledge of flora, fauna, and farming, geology, archeology, and, dare I say, a sharp wit. You'll laugh till you cry while climbing a mountain or hillside as you learn more about the Burren than you...More
Shane is fantastic (and hilarious), and his extensive knowledge of the burren, history, flora and fauna present an idea opportunity to discover a bit of County Clare. I can't recommend signing up for a tour with him enough. We mete him at the parking lot...More
