Unfortunately the weather was not overly cooperative, so our group could not spend as much time as we wanted in this area with most of our visit on wheels. It was enough for us to see and appreciate the unique characteristics of this area which...More

For many of the same reasons I find Death Valley in California remarkable, I find the Burren landscape stunning and try to get there anytime I am in Ireland. Took another photographer with this time and they were just as taken as I.

When I told people we were planning a trip to Ireland, everyone kept telling me to visit The Burren. Honestly, I didn't get the amazement. But we decided to give it an hour or so once we were there. And they are all right--it is...More

The geological features of The Burren are unique. There are a number of walks of differing severity in the national park. Whilst I only did one, classified a hard, I would have loved to have done others if I had had time. The only drawback...More

We always rent a car a drive thru Ireland. The Burren is one of my favorite car trips. You can stop and photograph, walk around without feeling pushed by tour buses. Plus, you might luck up and find an unexpected ruin as we did today...it...More

We saw the Burren as part of a guided tour through Ireland. Although we did stop for a little bit for pictures, we didn't spend much time here so I can't recommend whether or not there's lots to do. But the landscape is very unique,...More

Just pull over when you just cannot stand to drive by another minute! This is a must see and do! Get out of your car and just walk, carefully, over the grey limestone rocks, flatter in some areas than others. The view of the Wild...More

There are no fees. A lot of what we did in the Burren was driving around and jumping out to walk around in interesting looking spots.
