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.

Beautiful spot and well worth a hike up Mullaghmore. Trails well marked. Lots to see here and you might not even make it to the Cliffs!

I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this as much as I did. It is much more stunning and interesting than the pictures I had seen. Surprisingly, the flowers growing there were beautiful.

We enjoyed the park itself. There are several trails available in varying distances. The park itself though was quite difficult to find. There were occasional road signs but none at critical junctions. We had to go to the park visitor centre and even after getting instructions on where to go, we had trouble finding the trail head we were looking for. Very little parking at the trail head as well.

This National Park is largely a limestone pavement. However it is far from flat with some very significant hills, cliffs and so forth. It is occupied in tiny areas of soil by a wide range of plants

Our Airbnb hosts recommended we make a trip to the Burren. They told us Neil Armstrong had commented during his visit that it was the most like the moon then anyplace he'd been on earth.

We were glad we availed of the free and frequent shuttle bus as the parking area was full when we arrived at the trailhead. The bus service leaves from the Burren National Park info point in Corofin village every half an hour until 5pm. We enjoyed the Blue loop up Mullach Mór where we saw gorgeous flowers and a cuckoo! Note there are no facilities in the park but there are toilets in the info point.

The Burren definately makes you feel like you on another planet. The Park is about 21km from Ennis .

There are various trails that are open 24hrs & it's free . It's quite a big area so you can choose whether you want to get to the big hill or walk on the flat limestone rocks or get closer to the ocean & see the real contrast between the rocks & the ocean.

This is something different & a must for those who enjoy hikes & nature or even if you just want to see the "strange" rocks & take a picture

Beautiful, stunning natural wonder of the world. A must visit. So peaceful and amazing. Great photo opportunities & history. A sight to behold. A drive to Corkscrew Hill close by is a must too.
