In the north west corner of Co. Clare, the Burren is a rock garden of no ordinary proportions. The Burren extends over more than 100 square miles. The limestone area has many unusual features that make it unique in Europe.
Its geology, flora, caves, archaeology and history set it apart as a place of great mystery and beauty; there are countless wild flowers so that the region is a mass of colour.
It has mountainous characteristics with wonderful seashore, and is liberally scattered with the monuments created by its human inhabitants in the course of 6,000 years.
