4.7
#4 of 15 in Parks in The Burren
Witness the natural wonder of Burren National Park, an area that is both rocky and fertile. "Burren" comes from an Irish word meaning "a rocky place," which fits because the area is full of exposed limestone. You can tour the karst hills of the region, which are rich in historic and archeological sites, including several megalithic tombs, portal dolmens, and the nearby Corcomroe Abbey. Leave time to visit the 1,500 hectare (3,707 acre) national park, located in the southeastern corner of the region.

  • A real hidden gem amongst all the other things to see and do in Clare. Had a wonderful hike there following the marked trails with my family. The landscape, views, fossils in the rocks and wonderful hike made for a great day.
  • So easy to be at peace with your thoughts when hiking throught this breathtaking and almost harsh landscape. Beautiful and rocky, mixed with some lush green paths. Beware your footing for cow patties.
