About Burren Mountain Tours
This is a unique driving experience over a private mountain farm in the Burren. We travel the route taken by the herdsmen of long ago to winter their cattle in the mountain. You can learn about life and farming in the Burren as well as the history, heritage, flora and fauna of this region. This is a real authentic experience of Irish life with a local family. The views of Galway Bay and the Atlantic Coastline from the top of the mountain are spectacular. Experience the magical and tranquility of the Burren landscape up close away from the main tourist spots. Walking options also available.

Really enjoyed this experience even if it wasn't a fine day. Anne is a very friendly and knowledgeable person and we enjoyed talking farming with her. So nice to be off the beaten track and almost have the place to ourselves. Thank you so much for generously sharing your little slice of paradise with us. From the NZ gate openers :-)

We enjoyed our tour. In fact it was a highlight of our Irish adventure. What looked from the roadway like a barren wasteland transforned into a historic, reverent, beautiful part of Ireland. John and Anne were knowledgeable and engaging. It was a privilege to walk through history with them.

Anne and John offer an amazing off-the-beaten-path look at the Burren that you'd never see from a tour bus, with ancient sights and panoramic mountaintop views of Galway Bay and the Aran Islands. They are stepped in local history and a pleasure to spend an afternoon with. I can't recommend it more.
