Intentionally undeveloped national park which frees it from large parking lots, tea rooms, and gift shops. Do recommend that you source a local guide. I suspect the landscape here is what Ireland would like like everywhere without the peat bogs.

A very interesting national park, the scenery is unlike anything else that I have seen, great for walking and wild flowers especially orchids.

A very special landscape - but it covers a large area and you need to do some research to find the most impressive views and hikes. We drove northeast from Corofin on R460 and then turned northward. Great experience even on rainy days - and...More

Went as part of Ancestry tour. Maybe the best way to get across Ireland, but a long ride with little to see. Not green like the rest of the country. Miles of flat land.

We drove around the Burren and the views and landscape were spectacular. There were plenty of points to stop and walk and viewing points also. A beautiful landscape. We stopped at Bishops Beach which offered some wonderful views.

I’m so glad we drover around the Burren. Our kids loved walking on the stones. We felt like we were on another planet. Lots of places to stop and take in views.

The Burren are well worth your trip. Awe inspiring geology overlooking the Atlantic. Artic and Mediterranean flowers vie for your attention on this pristine landscape.

We drove though, stopped a few places, but did not hike through. It was a breathtaking, stark difference between this area and the green lush areas we had been to. I am definitely happy we drove through.

There are no fees. A lot of what we did in the Burren was driving around and jumping out to walk around in interesting looking spots.
