I really enjoy the walk, Tony is great. He shares his extensive knowledge in an fun way and connects with his guests. He is a great ambassador for the Burren. We talked about everything from flowers, to glaciers, to goats, to hurling.

Tony Kirby guides everyone through a thoroughly interesting overview of the botany, archeology, and history of The Burren. He's knowledge, passionate, and engaging. His poetry recitations will linger with you after the tour.
