The Burren

The Burren is a region offering what lots of visitors would describe as a lunar landscape: the rock formations there date back to some 340 million years ago and were originally at the bottom of a sea! The area is perfect for geologists and botanists, with a unique diversity of flora boasting more than 900 native species. You will also find plenty of megalithic tombs, churches and abbeys, ring forts and tower houses.
