My daughter and I loved our tour with Tony who explained the geology, archeology, social and political history as well as the flora and fauna of this unique area with data and humor. The walk is relatively easy and the sights are so much better...More

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.

Tony was excellent and the group was a nice size. The 2.5 hours just flew. Armed with Tony-supplied local hazel sticks (handy) we walked and were informed about lots of local flora and fauna. Tony was a great guide, answered questions and was super informative...More

My wife and I and four other tourists went on a Burren walk that Tony led yesterday. It was superb. His knowledge of geology, botany and history were only surpassed by his communication abilities. Adding his sincerity, vulnerability, warm sense of humour, and the very...More

We spent a longish half day with Tony Kirby. He created a custom itinerary for us and was sensitive to our pace. He seems super well informed and provided a warm and intelligent commentary as he took us around.

No visit to the Burren is complete without a guided walk with Tony. I visit the beautiful County Clare every year and could not return without joining Tony on one of his walks. Come rain or shine, old or young, the experience is not to...More

Tony delivers a very well-rehearsed, very informative walk, that I would rate as an easy to moderate walk on the physical skill level. His knowledge across different disciplines gave us a greater appreciation of the Burren environment and informed the rest of our trip there....More
