Burren Experience Guided Walks in County Clare
Groups can experience the rough and intriguing landscape of the Burren with their own guide. The walks are very much one of engagement and include insight and interpretation on the historical and spiritual landmarks as well as the botany, geology, and farming of the area.
Below are 2 examples of tailor made tours – tour themes can be completely customised to your group’s interests!
The Mullaghmore Experience Walk
This exhilarating walk in the Burren National Park will explore natural settings that can only be reached on foot. Groups will be led up into the mountains, where they will be rewarded with some magnificent views of the surrounding countryside and gain insight into the flora, fauna and archaeological remnants of the past. The walk finishes with a tour of the family farm where they can encounter the many farm animals including Midget the Shetland pony. Then its tea and home-made scones in Nonie’s kitchen (supplement applies for this).
Stones & Stories Walk
This tour is an informational and heritage walk of the Burren.
Groups will experience its wilderness and gain insight into the past generations who farmed this landscape and where the legacies of our forefathers unfold. Walk highlights include:
- Walking the Famine road
- Lie on the Leaba clochmor (giant stone bed)
- See The old Homestead of Hermit Mick
Private tours run all year. The walks can be arranged at a time that suits your group’s itinerary.
Notes for Group Leaders
