Stories & Wisdom – a woodland walk

‘Pay what you want’

Let's go for a walk in the woods today

Garryland and Coole Nature Reserve is located outside the market town of Gort in South Co. Galway at the edge of the famous landscape of the Burren. This is a wonderful area to explore the world of forest and lake. Let’s go for a walk in this wonderful habitat while we chat about trees. Which trees here are native to Ireland? What are their special features? What is the connection to the Celtic Tree Calendar and Ogham writing?

From Grimm’s fairy tales to the great Irish legends, stories are what bind it all together, nature and people and our connection to the land. Being out and about in the woods, chatting about our experiences and ideas, observing nature is a wonderful thing to do. Looking at trees you might forget your worries and breathe easy. You will certainly get lots of fresh forest air.

Easy walking, please bring suitable clothing for changeable weather.

Meeting Point: Coole Park near Gort, Co. Galway. SPECIAL – pay what you want, max 10 participants. Please contact us about available dates.

What's Included

For these tours you will meet your guide at a local meeting point and spend 2 to 3 hours exploring the landscape, the sites, learning something new, experiencing something special. Check out our calendar and book your favourite tour.

Guided by locals

Our vehicle for chauffeured tours is a practically new Volkswagen Transporter for maximum 8 guests, for 2021 we are limiting our guest numbers to 6. Sitting a bit higher than in a limousine you will have a great view and see more of the landscape passing by. For extended tours we have plenty of room for your luggage.

Great Photo Locations

Taking photos has become so easy, we will make sure to stop at the best locations so that you can bring back amazing photos, share them and keep them as a memory of a special trip. For our Sonas Tours we suggest switching off your devices and spend some time 'offline' to be free to experience your surroundings.

Supporting Trees

Sustainable tourism is important to us. One measure to make a difference for climate change is to plant trees. 10 % of our proceeds are going towards native trees being planted in Ireland.
