Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Munster / County Clare / The Burren / Corofin / Burren National Park
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.
