A drive through the Burren is a must. The Lime Stone and stone fences is timeless. The flowers growing amongst the rocks is so pretty.

Is well worth visiting. We stopped first at the prehistoric site Dolmen which is free with good signage. Then went on a 5 Km walk round a small part of the Burren way. Really lovely. Lots of walking options and one quickly leaves behind all...More

Limestone area that is really unique. It is rugged so you need good walking shoes. It was windy and rainy and a little slippery when we were there so walk around at your own risk!
