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

Impressive national park. Windy, cold, rainy, misty, moody atmosphere. Like moonscape. We just visited Poulnabrone Dolmen, but we were very impressed

We were not expecting this kind of terrain in Ireland but it has a real rugged beauty and is a lot of fun to hike. Well worth several hours to a full day of your time.

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.

We drove past and through sections of this limestone formation en route north and east to Dublin after visiting the Cliffs of Moher. It was truly incredible to see how vast this area is in the middle of the west coast area of Ireland. Sections...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
