Carran — 7 nights

Carran, sometimes also spelled "Carron", is a small village in County Clare, Ireland, in the region known as the Burren, within a civil parish of the same name. Your day by day itinerary now includes Heart of Burren Walks. Spend the 5th (Mon) among the memorable landscape of The Burren. There's still lots to do: look for gifts at Burren Perfumery, steep yourself in history at Caherconnell Stone Fort & Sheepdog Demonstrations, tour the pleasant surroundings at Lough Avalla Farm Looped Walk, and don't miss a visit to Poulnabrone Dolmen.

The Burren gets its name from an anglicized version of the Irish word "Boireann," which translates to "rocky place." Showcasing giant slabs of exposed limestone with little to no soil cover, the landscape provides a sharp contrast to Ireland's lush green fields. Between the jagged angles of rock run small streams and varied fauna fills in the gaps between the stony outcroppings. The mixture of arctic, Mediterranean, and alpine plants all growing in the rocky ground make the Burren a distinctive place to visit.
