We followed the Wild Atlantic Way after visiting the Cliffs of Moher and we stopped to see the Burren. It makes you feel like you’re in another world. No wonder J.R.R. Tolkien used this place as his inspiration for Middle Earth in The Lord of...More

This is definitely worth seeing, especially if you are near the Cliffs of Moher. It's very hard to describe - but you do feel like you are in another place or time. Stop and walk around - see the Poulnabrone (an ancient tomb almost 6,000...More

I'm sure the Burren is spectacular on a bright sunny day in June. We were fortunate enough to experience it on a gray and misty day in October. Ghosts and poets dancing through the mists. Stones, castles, ruins of stones and castles. Wind and waves....More

The Burren is an isolated, dry limestone area on the West Coast of Ireland, You will feel like you landed on the moon when you leave behind the lush green landscapes and come in contact with this flat barren area.

The landscape is so very interesting. You will feel like you are standing on another planet. Yes, it's "just" rocks, but the fact that there are so many rocks...interesting! The cracks and crevasses are cool too.

The park is free and there are lots of walking and hiking trails. We parked along the road and picked up the nature trail walk. It was an easy but beautiful walk, appropriate for small kids. Great views of some truly bizarre scenery.

Hi Margarita I’m afraid I can’t help with your query as I’m not from the locality of the Burren and I don’t know the local people. I wish you well and have a fantastic trip to Ireland. Regards Mary
