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.

  • We were glad we availed of the free and frequent shuttle bus as the parking area was full when we arrived at the trailhead. The bus service leaves from the Burren National Park info point in Corofin.....  more

  • One of the most beautiful places I’ve been. Perfect weather and temperature for hiking. Proper shoes recommended. I did the white and blue trail; the last was difficult but felt fantastic after.
  • Not sure if it was just Google maps taking us on an adventure but we travelled along many narrow farm type roads to get to the Burren national park. It's unusual to experience a park that consists of rock formations as far as the eye can see. The rocks were amazing and we wish we had more time to explore a bit longer and do a few hikes. We still enjoyed this special terrain none the less
