Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is an impressive feature that stretches for miles. It’s even better if you cycle through it as you get a better experience through the windy roads!

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. The scenery is so unusual and beautiful and the wild flowers had to be seen to be believed. The brochures were true! The views are stunning, quite breathtaking.

I urge you not to just drive through the area. Stop and wander around and take in the majesty and scale of what you are viewing. There is a lot to see and a lot to distract you but nothing beats putting your feet on the ground, feeling the wind in your hair and scanning the panorama. Terrific.

We have traveled through the Burren twice during our trips to Ireland and they are simply stunning to see. Totally unlike anything you have ever seen. We hope to make another trip to see them during the spring or summer months when they apparently have wildflowers scattered among the area. Truly lovely area to experience

This walk took about 3 hours, moderate to hard, you need walking shoes and rain jacket, with drinks and maybe a snack or 2. You are going through a farmers land (with his permission), he even leaves walking sticks to help you and at the end invites you in his home for tea/coffee and homemade baking (donation pot on the way out). Feel bad l cant remember his name cos he was really chatty and knowledgeable about the burren.

We came to the Burren to stay for 5 weeks in Ballyvaughan. It was an easy distance from Shannon Airport and once we descended into County Clare, we began to cross the Burren to get to the sea. We stopped a couple of time along the way to get a closer look at what appeared to be burial sites: huge stones forming a box with a heavier stone on top. The area was so stark, I wasn't certain I liked it at all? But as the weeks passed, I grew to love the rock formations and hills that had been sculpted
centuries ago before man was on the earth. There's something almost sacred about the area and I know as we must soon leave that I will miss the burren, unlike any area I've ever experienced. It will be a memory for the rest of my life.

Sea, lakes, mountains, rock formations, The Burren is matchless in it's beauty. Travelling along the scenic coastal roads is once in a lifetime experience. Awesome!

I'm still trying to wrap my brain around how old this area is. I could almost feel the stones telling me stories of days gone by. I thought it was spiritual and unique and am glad we made the stop.
Make sure you watch your step as it would be easy to step into a pit and twist your ankle or fall.
