Amazing terrain

A must see of this fabulous unique terrain in Ireland. Hike and look for fossils but watch your footing as not to get your ankles caught between rocks.

First, getting there is by itself a treat. If you are driving, you will be going through very narrow back roads winding around actual operating farms. You get to see the country side with horses and cows and other farm animals. Once at the Burren, if you have time, take one of the several walking trails and explore on your... More

I have been in the Burren many times and still Im amazed every single time. For some people its only grey stone formations, to me its one of the most special areas Ive ever seen. If you walk on the stone, just see whats hidden in the cracks. You see mediterrane flowers right beside alpine flowers. Its unbelievable. Most amazing... More

The burden is a fabulous alien stone landscape. The higher you go, the more awe inspiring the views are. Hiking or comfortable non slip shoes are required. We stayed at deelin more self catering accommodation, surrounded by the burren landscape and which I very highly recommend ... NOTE: No internet and very low mobile phone signal, which is totally in... More

If you like to drive around a landscape that really could be somewhere else other than earth, this is your spot. Loads of interesting views for sure, but ultimately, the Burren itself isn't all that interesting. There are venues found within the Burren that hold the treasure, like many of the old stone forts or the dolmens. Odds are you'll... More

Had a fun walk pretending we were on some alien planet. Tons of great photos. Really neat to see something like this which is so different looking.

If you're lucky (and brave) enough to rent a car in Ireland, take your time whilst driving the Burren. There's a lot to see, but a lot can be missed. I made sure to consult my CityMaps2Go app (no data required) to check our surroundings for sights along the drive!

We were told that the gray rocky texture was the same as the moon. It was a really cool gray, sharp, and jagged rock that covered the area and made it hard for vegetation to grow. We were also warned not to leave your car unattended or out of site that people would prey on tourists by breaking into their... More

We went on Dec 30th from Dublin in Extreme Ireland tours to Cliffs of Moher and they took us to this place. It felt like being on the moon, picturesque place. Worth the visit.
