I can't recommend this highly enough! I arranged a tour with Tony for a group of 6 of us attending a conference in Ennis. Despite the rainy and chilly weather, we all felt the tour was a highlight of.... more »
Tony is a world class tour guide who cares deeply for the beautiful landscape of Burren and the people who steward it today. He provides a deep insight into both the natural and sociological history that produced this truly unique region and the struggles it faces today. Our tour took us through an active farm and included both a challenging hike and beautiful views. Should I find myself in Ireland again I'd happily seek out another tour with Tony.
It is clear that Tony is knowledgable about The Burren. He provided us with information about the geology, fauna, and history of this amazing place. He knew the area and the people. But perhaps more importantly, it was evident that he was passionate and dedicated to the park. He was excited to be there and show it to us. Tony's insight about the park was unique and will probably be one of the things I remember most about my first trip to Ireland. If you are interested in learning I would really suggest this tour. I would certainly take one again!
