  • star rating  A taste of The Burren food tour has been the highlight of our summer. It is such a fun way to spend a day, and such a unique way of exploring all the magic that The Burren has to offer. There is just something special about this area, and to eat & drink your way around it, whilst having the comfort of being driven by the fantastic (and funny!) Jonathan, well the craic was had. I will be recommending to friends & family for sure.

  • star rating  We had heard about the Burren from some friends and wanted to find a way to explore it on our Irish trip from Edinburgh. We found ‘A Taste of the Burren Food Tour’ online and being big into our food we went for that. We both loved it! Jonathan was brilliant, very professional and had a huge welcome for us. The stop offs were really cool and all unique in their own way. This is perfect if you like your food and drink and want to take in a beautiful part of the world! Would definitely do it again.
