Well this is bit off of the beaten path. We stopped to visit on the way to Galway from Cork. Unfortunately our timing was a it off since we arrived just before sunset. The roads are the typical narrow ones that are off the freeways...More
The Burren National Park is a direct contrast to the lush green landscape you encounter all over Ireland.. You will feel like you landed on the moon in the desolate flat dry limestone fields. It is definitely an off the beaten path trip in Ireland.
This unique landscape is unlike any place I have been previously. Limestone ground that has been eroded. Sprouts of green and flowers even in autumn. I can only imagine the beauty of this place in spring. Its a contrast to the rest of Irelands green...More
This barren area of Ireland really shows how resilient the Irish people have been over the years. The areas we visited dated back thousands of years to early settlers. The drive eastward has roads that snake down the mountains and include good areas to pull...More

Allow several hours. It is a wide expanse including ancient artifacts (poulebrone portal tomb and also ringed forts at Caherconnel) and the road twists and turns through ancient rock. It is actually a UNESCO Geopark. There is a great center in Kilfenora that explains the rock formation and the ancient history of the area. It also has a lovely tearoom. Also see Corcomroe Abbey, the remains of a beautiful, ancient church where dignitaries are still buried today. It is my favorite area in Ireland. See also Dunguaire Castle in Kinvara.
