The County Clare Farm Heritage Tours Co-op is a co-operative of farmers who continue a tradition of farming in the Burren which dates back over 6000 years. Some areas of the Burren remain unchanged since the earliest activities of the first farmers, and these areas are regarded as important prehistoric landscapes that have survived the changes in the landscape throughout the millennia.
With the establishment of the County Clare Farm Heritage Tours Co-op, the landowners can now offer guided access to these sites and monuments, which are representative of the treasures of North Clare. All the farm lands associated with the co-op are located less than 40 minutes from Ennis; 1 hour from Shannon International Airport or 1 hour from Galway Airport.
The Farm Tours are both educational and fun, allowing visitors to hear about the landscape of the Burren direct from the people who live and work in the Burren. The farm tours are provided by individual landowners, who share their inhernet wealth of knowledge about local history and archaelogy, landscape heritage and geology, and farming practices (both old and new), as well as innumerable anecdotes and tales about the Burren and its people.
There is simply no guide like a local guide!
