We offer guided walking tours in to the heart of the Burren landscape!

The Burren is a National Conservation Area; an amazing limestone escarpment, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the Aran Islands and Galway Bay. Burren is an English word from the gaelic “boireann”, a rocky place although the Burren is shaped more by water than by rock. Underground, there are thousands of streams and rivers and it exists because it is perfectly balanced, at the edge of the sea, at the end of the land, made of rock that was once eroded from above and is now being eroded from below.

We offer a full programme of day tours. Each tour covers a broad range of interests such as an introduction to Irish history, the archaeology of the Burren, mythology, the Burren’s unique botany, story telling, folklore and folk traditions, Poteen distilling and much more.

Our walks are sociable and relaxed, interesting and most importantly lots of fun. So choose the tour that suits you best.
