The Burren, Caherconnell

#4 of 12 in Nature in County Clare
Geologic Formation · Nature / Park
Witness the natural wonder of The Burren, 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. Take in gorgeous views of the rugged shoreline cliffs. 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. The area also features a wealth of flora, fauna, and herbs. Leave time to visit the 1,500 hectare (3,707 acre) Burren National Park, located in the southeastern corner of the region.
