About Us


We are a young locally based professional tour company that offer guided walking tours in to the heart of the Burren landscape located on Irelands west coast.

We offer a full programme of day tours. Each tour covers a broad range of interests such as an introduction to a working farm where you learn of old and new practices. Irish history, the archaeology of the Burren, mythology, the Burren’s unique botany, story telling, folklore & folk traditions, Poteen distilling and much more.

We cater for all levels of experience and groups sizes. Our walks are sociable and relaxed, interesting and most importantly lots of fun.

So choose the tour that suits you best.

Burren Wild was founded by John A. Connolly, a local of the area. John was awarded a B.A. degree in Irish Heritage in 2003, and has featured on BBC, TG4.
John is the only walking guide in Ireland that gives tours on his own land.

We hope our enthusiasm and fondness for walking, hiking and the outdoor life will leave you with many positive memories.
