Barry’s Burren Walking Weekend
A wonderful few days of relaxed hiking in Ireland’s most unique landscape.
Hike the length of the magnificent Cliffs of Moher and through the very heart of The Burren’s limestone pavement. Enjoy great trad music in Doolin and breathe in the fresh sea breeze of Galway Bay.
This is 4 nights, plus 3.5 days hiking at a moderate level.
