Burren Guided Walk
US$23.16
Overview
Tucked between the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and Galway Bay in Ireland, the Burren is a rugged landscape of limestone uplands and gentle valleys, where native wildflowers thrive. On this tour, explore the Burren with your guide and find the finest views with ease. Navigate stony hiking trails and open pastureland, delve into 5,000 years of human habitation, and gain insight into the Burren’s rich geology.
What to Expect
The Meeting Point for each guided walk is in the centre of Kinvara Village, outside the Londis Supermarket at 10.00 am. From there you will travel by car to the Start Point of the walk in the Burren. This is a distance of approximately 8 km.
You must provide your own transport from the Meeting Point to the Start Point of the walk (e.g. your hired car, etc.). You will be walking on rough terrain so please make sure that you have good walking shoes/boots. The weather in Ireland is very changeable, so bring warms clothes and a rain jacket. The guide will provide commentary for the 3 hour duration of the walk.
Kinvara is very accessible from Galway City. Allow approximately 40 minutes for the drive to Kinvara.
