Hiring a car to drive through this area was a brilliant thing to do. Underground lakes, rocks, limestone formations, caves, abbeys, and more. I was blessed to see two rainbows over the landscapes. The terrain seems otherworldly in some areas. There are many castles, abbeys, churches lakes and sights to see along the way. I love the Burren Perfumery for... 更多
The Burren is a remarkable landscape, and if you get a nice clear day, be sure to visit. The hike from Gortlecka to Mullaghmore was actually pretty easy, unlike the national park guide that classifies them as "Very Difficult" - we did the hike in 3/4 of the time without a break, and neither of us are super fit! The... 更多
I had consulted with an Irish born friend about his recommendations for my upcoming trip to Ireland and his first pick was "the Burren". It was our first pick as well and it did not disappoint! The rocky, limestone outcroppings and wild landscapes were reminiscent of a time long past. We spent an entire day exploring and could have stayed... 更多
A lovely drive through some lovely scenery. Very different to anything else. Well worth a visit. Would have liked more time to enjoy some of the walks
My friend and I booked a walking tour of the Burren area before arriving in Ireland. Shane met us at the church in Ballyvaughan and drove us and another couple to the beginning spot for the tour. He was incredibly knowledgeable, informative and funny. We stopped multiple times along the way to learn about the geology, farm animals, ring forts,... 更多
This was one of several places I wish we had had more time to spend. After driving for several days through the incredibly lush green beauty of Southern Ireland, through breathtaking scenery including mountains, rivers and streams, emerald fields running with sheep and cattle, the Burren was an abrupt departure. A rugged beauty of its own, it begs to be... 更多
I always visit The Burren when I go to Ireland. I especially love the southeast Mullaghmore region, where the plateau reaches a height of 626 feet (191 m). Historic and popular stops are the Poulnabrone Dolmen and the eerie Leamaneagh Castle. Kilfenora is a great stop as well -- it has a modest 12th-century cathedral and is famous for its... 更多
We drove through the Burren on our way to Galway and it was like another planet with huge areas of barren limestone rock. We didn't have time to explore more but it would be well worth it.
The burren is brilliant to look at, but even better to explore. Tread carefully, making sure to keep yourself from falling and to avoid killing the plants that are growing in the tiniest of crevices. If you can hire a local guide, you'll have an even greater appreciation for the extensive plant life that abounds.
