The Burren landscape is fascinating in itself with the vast barren fields of pinkish weathered limestone providing a fascinating backdrop. Add to this a history dating back millenia and a range of artisanal crafts scattered across the area and it makes for a great day...More

The Burren has so much to offer: walking, flora, fresh air, scenery, wildlife, lakes and the wonderful limestone landscape. There are many Loop walks to enjoy or your own self designed walk. Take your time and enjoy.

The Burren is an area but this is focused on the national park. It's really more of a cross-roads between a small narrow road and a tiny one. But the scenery is beautiful and stark. You actually have to work a bit to get off...More
