The Burren National Park is a place of great natural beauty. There are various marked trails in the Park that take you through many fascinating and beautiful habitats, such as calcareous grasslands, woodlands and limestone pavement. Entry is free...more
I was told by a friend about the Burren and the landscape is really impressive. So on our trip, we went on a "very difficult" route and got absolutely soaked. We still enjoyed the hike and view (even though it was kind of limited, sadly)....More
This is a very small national park, with only a few hiking trails. We almost accidently came across the Visitor Centre and decided to take the shuttle bus, since the roads are narrow and we weren't sure how the parking would be and it was...More
Today we were part of a Guided Walk which began with a free bus trip from the Burren Information Point in Corofin to the starting place at Gortlecka Cross. Our guide Mark was a mine of information on the plants, trees, flowers, birds, butterflies, etc.,...More
Fascinating changing landscape with iconic cultural stops. A relatively straightforward drive, and truly beautiful. We had very bad weather but still managed to enjoy all of the stops. Excellent route and well laid out.
Took the family here, they thought I was nuts. We drove out of the way to see The Burren. And oh so many rocks. All around, all over. But the highlight was the gravesite. Older than the pyramids in Giza, it was cool to see...More

I can’t imagine how any visit to the west coast of Ireland could not include a visit and exploration of the Burren. I have never seen anything like it and nobody was there. Spent two hours on a weeknight evening love seeing the limestone, powerful...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.
