Burren Wild Tours
The Burren is a small, windswept region of Ireland located in county Galway characterised by rocky—often desolate—landscapes. While seemingly a world away from the greenery of the ‘Emerald Ireland’, the Burren bursts into bloom in the spring when wildflowers come into season. In fact, three out of four of Ireland’s native flower species are found here.
Burren Wild Tours offers a comprehensive set of day tours across this landscape. These include visits to working farms where visitors can learn about time-tested farming practices. Archaeology, history, culture and mythology are all on the agenda. Walks are relaxed and sociable events, but there’s plenty to learn and experience along the way.
Tours last between one and three hours, and they vary in difficulty. The gentlest walks explore the Burren hills and take in ancient and early Christian sites of interest. The more challenging walks head higher into the mountains and delve into the folklore of the ancient Celtic cultures that thrived here.
