Travel in comfort while learning about the wonderful archaeology, history, habitat and farming in the Burren mountain from the farm family.

From early spring the mountain is like a flower garden and you will see the exotic mix of flowers that thrive here from different habitats and climate zones.  This is a botanist’s haven.

You will see the fertile Cahir Valley and the Cahir River, the only continuous over ground river in the entire Burren.

This driving experience gives universal access to the Burren mountain, previously reserved for those with the ability to walk this strenuous route.  It is ideal for those who may not have the time or physical ability to cover this track on foot.

Our walking tours are ideal for nature lovers or those looking for an “up close” experience with the Burren landscape as we walk along a relatively flat 4 mile track.

Small groups only.  Tailored tours and educations tours by appointment.
