Marie is very knowledgeable of the area and was able to answer all our questions and recommend other places to go nearby as well. Our trip here was... More

We did a private walk with Marie. It was absolutely amazing. My husband is a Forester and is very interested in plants and the unique ecosystem of the area. Marie was so knowledgeable! It was spring time so many of the wild flowers were blooming. We made it to the top of the mountain - what a beautiful view! The... More

We recently stayed in Maries cottage in the heart of the Burren. It was extremely spacious, clean and comfortable complete with two very friendly miniature ponies in the huge back garden to greet us every morning. A paradise for our two year old son. It was the perfect base to work from to see all the attractions Co. Clare has... More

Marie customized a route for us based on our desire to learn about the plants and the life in the area. She showed us the blue gentian, and purple orchid, as well as numerous other plants. Spring was slow to arrive so few flowers had yet blossomed. Marie clearly is at home here, taking us off marked trails, up to... More

My husband and I booked a walk on the Burren with Marie - recommended to us through our hotel. I have arthritis and she was wonderful, making sure I was ok and giving my husband some directions to go off and take some stunning photos while she stayed behind with me. Her knowledge and passion for the area is amazing.... More

The whole experience - from planning, to the walk, and finally the tea at Marie and Michael's home was exactly what we were looking for on our trip to Ireland. I wasn't sure when to book or how to fit this in the middle of a long day of driving, but Marie was so accommodating and she gave us lots... More

We recently took a 4 hour hike in the Burren National Park with Marie, the owner of Mullaghmore Experience. While reading our guide books prior to travel, we had read that Mullaghmore Mountain had the most amazing landscape and was the best example of the geology found in the Burren region. I had searched on TA for tours of this... More
