Wat je gaat doen

Our walk will take in most of the various natural habitats of the Burren, including limestone karst, hazel scrubland and calcareous grasslands. We will identify the unique and rare flowers, according to season. I will also give an outline of the 5,000 years of human habitation in the area, pointing out the marks left by the countless generations. We will visit a holy site (pagan & Christian) and I will explain how the unique landscape was formed, and how humans have shaped it over the past 5,000 years. I will also explain the unique farming methods over the past 500 years that have shape the landscape and it's flora that we see today. While sightings of the local fauna (wildlife) can be rare, I will identify them and illustrate their activity in the area also.
Other things to note
Our walk is approx 4 km long and a reasonable level of fitness is required. While hiking boots are ideal, a good pair of walking shoes will suffice.

I live in the Burren for the last 4 years and I lecture in Tourism in Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology. I have been leading walks for over 10 years, three of these in the Burren in Counties Galway and Clare. I have a particular interest in the social history of our region, which stretches back more that 5,000 years, and the marks that these settlements have left on the landscape. I am also interested in the unique flora of the Burren and the geology that make this area so unique.

It was a pleasure to do this walk with Paul. He knows a lot about the history of the Burren and about the wild flowers there. He told us a lot about it all. A very interesting and pleasant tour!

Paul is obviously an expert in fauna and flora as well as geological and historical conditions concerning the Burren. I liked dive deeper into botanical aspects and to see the rare and threatened by extinction plants of the Burren. I definitely can recommend this experience.

It was a pleasure to spend the afternoon with Paul. A unique experience! Paul is highly professional, really knows his stuff and loves his subject. He is continually on the Burren and knows just where to find the unusual plants in flower. He also covered a wide range of subjects, ecology, geology, archaeology, history, even spirituality. An exceptionally interesting tour!

Definitely a great experience! Learned so much about this fascinating area that I would not have been able to do on my own.
