  • About Us

    To promote health, fitness and wellbeing through walking

Our Story

Established in 2018, Nordic Fitness Ireland combines wellness and accommodation at Burkedale House in Dysert O’Dea, Co. Clare. Owned by Tony and Joanne Burke, the house offers breathtaking views and comfortable surroundings.

Originally from Dublin and Oxford, Tony and Joanne met in London over 30 years ago. They relocated to Clare in 2001 to provide their children with an Irish education. When their children left for university in the UK, Tony and Joanne returned there too, opening Burkedale House to Airbnb guests.

After Joanne retired from nursing in 2017, she expanded the business by adding a Traditional Irish Cottage and establishing Nordic Fitness Ireland as a fitness walking instructor. Tony later joined her as an instructor while continuing his work as an IT consultant.

At Nordic Fitness Ireland, we believe in the power of physical activity and the tranquility of nature. Join us for an invigorating wellness experience in the heart of Ireland’s beauty.
