Want a challenge? This is the place to do it. Winding at times and oft times steep but worth it. The view is amazing. Leave plenty of time to get off the grounds if it is getting dark! :)

The Burren is a wonderful place to see unusual countryside and rock formations. We loved our visit and our photos are outstanding. Definitely worth the trip!

The Burren fascinates me -- I love looking at it and driving through it, but it was a relief to get off those cow-path roads and take a good walk and see the Dolmen, which is older than the Pyramids!

The dolmen dates to 3000 BC and is small but important historically. Botanically and geologically the Burren is unique.

If you have a car, The Burren is best when you just drive. Corkscrew Hill is named perfectly!! Hold onto your nerves and explore! The Burren is geological wonder, the roads are uniquely Ireland, and sites are magnificent! The Burren is best when traveled solo in car with no time table, have a sense of adventure and enjoy Ireland!!

You could ask for nicer place to get of the beaten track and explore the Burren. There is plenty to sea and it boast an explusive selection of flowers found only in the Burren. To go with a guide is always best.

Shane is a local man, but has degrees in both archaeology and botany : and he is able to impart his knowledge in a way that is accessible, fun and interesting. His eye for detail is incredible...we... More
