The Burren is definitely an iconic area of Ireland that you need to visit, if nothing else for it's unique rocky landscape. As for how long you spend, you can honestly see the highlights in a few hours, or you can spend a day if...More

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.

the Burren is a large area, so first of all one needs a car, preferably with gps because the roads are small, winding and the signs confusing. There are several places to visit, ruins, tombs and just the landscape. That landscape is probably an ecological...More

Walk around this and imagine people living in this wild environment. Don't expect sun or warmth though - we were here in a rainy mist with wind.

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
