On a visit to Kilfenora whilst doing a tour of Ireland we stopped here for lunch. This Burren Centre had a 'walk through time' to see all about The Burren. You watch a film first before going around the exhibition which is very interesting with...More

Do take the time to visit The Burren Centre - it really is worth the time and provides a great overview of geology and history of the whole area. The film is excellent and the displays are well set up with just the right amount...More

Not only was the lady at the front desk the only unhappy person I met in Ireland but, the center and the exhibits were less than impressive. Spend your time somewhere else. My family breezed through in less than 30 minutes - nothing to catch...More

We were a little disappointed and felt we didn't get what we thought we would from this stop. The exhibition is ok, it's dark and a lot of reading needs to be done. They do have a short movie that didn't empress us at all....More

For a place that is supposed to introduce you to the Burren area, it was mediocre. In the brochures, it boasts having lots of local crafts. I was hoping for more unique pieces instead of what I have seen in lots of other shops. And...More
