|The Wellness in Nature days involved a hike through our 500 acre family farm, through the alluvial woodland where we took time to connect with nature and find stillness with forest-bathing. We shared our knowledge of farming practices that contribute to the beauty of the Burren and knowledge of the rare orchids, wildflowers and edible plants that call this unique place home. We made our way to the limestone shores of tranquil Lough Bunny for some yoga stretches and a dip in the water to rejuvenate the soul. |
We hiked the pavement to very poignant Shantaghphubble Chapel and had a scrumptious wholesome picnic nestled between Lough Bunny lake and the Burren Mountains to appreciate the beautiful Irish landscape and reconnect with nature.
Thank you to each and everyone of you who joined Siobhán and Brónagh (and Cathal!) on our very first Wellness in Nature day at Burren Farm Experience we are so glad everyone really enjoyed, we’ve had great feedback, everyone seemed to have a different highlight. Whether it was sitting quietly on the soft moss in the hazel woodland, the dip in Lough Bunny, resting on the limestone pavement, the tasty picnic or realising that we had hiked 10km over the day!
We’d love to see you at our next Wellness in Nature Series which takes place Saturday 12 September,

The importance of Summer Solstice ties back to ancient Celtic society’s reliance on agriculture and crops. The reliance and appreciation for the sun is what brought people closer to nature and furthered the understanding of the environment. We decided to celebrate this year’s Summer Solstice with a sunrise walk and what a special morning it turned out to be with such a lovely group of people let’s hope we keep the tradition going thanks so much to everyone for coming.
Following the success of our Solstice walk and as we could not accommodate everyone we have decided to do a monthly hike on various trails on the farm the next walk will take place on Sunday the 26th of July at 10 am.
In light of the current situation we have decided to give our community the opportunity to get out in nature, we are only taking small family group’s of up to 6 people, our unique experience takes 3 hours and includes a scrumptious picnic, you’re dog is welcome too!
It’s is a good time to reinvigorate, revisit and perhaps find places you may have never seen. It’s time to look after your mental health. We are fully compliant with covid 19 restrictions, social distancing and hygiene standards.

As we are all taking time at home it’s a wonderful opportunity to support local businesses we were asked to provide vouchers as they are a lovely gift idea and when we are able to go out into the world again it might be fun to explore somewhere new and exciting somewhere you have never been or give a different gift to someone special in your life that person who is difficult to buy for may very well love to see somewhere unique.
Our tour is a very unique experience it’s been described as a social and agricultural history of Our Country we take a step back in time looking at the old farmhouse we feed the calves take a trip through our 500 acre farm looking at hidden archaeological sites and of course explore the limestone pavement sunnomnious with the Burren. We are nestled between Lough Bunny lake and the Burren Mountains so if it’s spectacular scenery you are looking for there are many photo opportunities along the way. We even stop for a picnic if you fancy a rest although our vintage jeep will be doing most of the work! Simply go to our book a tour /buy a voucher page and send your enquiry.
We have been very busy getting the old farmhouse ready for our lovely visitors. Who’s coming for tea and scones or if you fancy some Irish stew?
Having had such a great season last year and receiving so many wonderful reviews and comments we were looking at ways to improve our service and other than the suggestion of putting a roof over the farm! We came up with an alternative, so we searched high and low and found the perfect solution to our issue and drumroll please… 🥁 For your comfort we can now take tour’s in our 1974 defender. It’s the ideal way to travel especially for intimate groups.
