National Park Nature / 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.

  • Really cool how the the rocks are like that without human interference. Getting there seemed sketchy at first being from anither country not knowing what to expect going out in the middle of nowhere but when we got there and saw other people there hiking, much better feeling. Would go back and hike again.
  • Very beautiful national park to visit. Didn't have time to experience it by foot, but a drive through it was enough for me to immerse myself in the beauty of mother nature. The horses and ponies definitely add a bit of fun to the park.
  • Large landscape of bedrock incorporating a vast cracked pavement of glacial-era limestone, with cliffs and caves, fossils, rock formations and archaeological sites. Little difficult to locate with the GPS but good place to hike.
  • I love climbing Mullaghmoore. It's absolutely breathtaking. The walk is approx 3 hours long but we'll worth the views. The landscape is unique. From the very top you can even see Fr. Ted's house..bonus
  • When I went there there was fog. Amazing atmosphere. Unique place.
