Nordic Fitness Ireland is run by husband-and-wife team Joanne (who was a Nurse for 40 years) and Tony (Veteran mountaineer of first successful Irish Everest Expedition 1993) Burke. Both are experienced walkers and qualified Nordic and fitness walking instructors who provide visitors with advice and guidance on how to maximize their walking experience.
Joanne and Tony have immersed themselves in the landscapes surrounding Burkedale House with views of the Burren, and love to welcome visitors to their home and gardens.
There are a variety of walking experiences starting from Burkedale House in the archaeologically rich area of Dysart O’Dea on the edge of the Burren Geopark. The walks meander through this tranquil and hidden gem, home to a rich and unique variety of flora and fauna. Follow paths trodden by pilgrims and ancient armies through the ages, to witness views towards the Burren National Park, before heading back to Burkedale House to enjoy either a delicious picnic, afternoon tea or cheese and wine depending on the experience you decided on.
