A neighbor told us about this walk they had enjoyed many years ago with Shane Connolly. So glad she did! Our time hiking up Black Hill was the highlight of our trip! First, we had an gorgeous day, clear and sunny. We could see the mountains and islands all around. Shane, our guide, told us we'd hit the jack pot!... More

I think it's fair that the weather is not always as good as we had it, however, Shane does an great trip with heaps of information. He's got a great sense of humor and very knowledgeable about the local area, The Burren itself and about the world in general! Definitely recommend. Be prepared to walk up hill, but it's easy...

The history is very interesting and my children took the opportunity to explore the area. Don't go out of your way but if you're in the area, stop by.

Just a stop to say you did it. Nothing special here but a small walk. Take a rain jacket, weather changes constantly.

Loved our walk with Shane on Black Head Jan 2nd in glorious sunshine. Loads of info and all thoroughly enjoyed from 6 to 76 years of age. Shane is highly engaging and we're back at our Ballyvaghan holiday home still talking about the huge info and many stories he shared. Thank you!

I just happened to come across this place while on our way back to our Airbnb location and I'm so glad we did. We came at sunset and it was great. Just the history that's there is mind blowing. The limestone formations under your feet were formed before humans existed. The tomb was constructed a thousand some years before the... More

We were so lucky to have wonderful weather for our walk with Shane. He is a wealth of knowledge and has a great quirky sense of humour. The flowers were in bloom and we saw Irelands orchids for the first time. The highlight was being at the top of Black head and having a nip of Jameson in a stone... More

We have been surching for the big Dülmen with navigation. As we reached our destination there was nothing. We looked around and then we saw that little stone in the backyard. It's just so tiny it isn't worth to spend a minute there. Even the cows go through the fence and eat the grass around the stone. We were a... More

Our B & B host set us up with Shane Connelly. It was arranged to meet him in a parking lot, where a number of others would also join up. There were 3 couples and Shane. He asked us as a group what everybody was interested in: Botony, geology and history. Based on that he took us up to Black... More
