This may not be the WOW of your itinerary but it’s so unique and worthwhile for a visit. It easily fits as you travel beteeen Cliffs of Moher and Galway. Great for kids as they can get out and explore a bit!

On our way from the cliffs we made our stop at the Burren Park. Great views of the Atlantic and rock formations shaped by many many years of geological events. Another great site and fantastic phot opportunities.

The Burren National Park is an excellent location for Karst (limestone) scenery. There are a number of sites both geological and historical scattered around the park. A must for those with an interest in geology.

On our way to the Cliffs of Moher, we discovered The Burren. Picture this... you’re driving through luscious green pastures of every colour of green you can imagine, then you start to see hills that are completely dull and grey. It’s a little eerie at...More

Word cannot express what an amazing surprise and delight seeing the Burren was. It felt like we were on another planet. Make sure to make it to the Poulnabrone dolmen.

The county should think about putting more signage for this park. We were so exited to see this landscape and we really only saw it out of our car window in an area not classified as the park, with no area to pull over. We...More

This is a really beautiful unique drive on the way to Galway. The scenery is unlike anywhere else. Just driving along the road gives you amazing views. Fun drive.

Well this is bit off of the beaten path. We stopped to visit on the way to Galway from Cork. Unfortunately our timing was a it off since we arrived just before sunset. The roads are the typical narrow ones that are off the freeways...More

The Burren National Park is a direct contrast to the lush green landscape you encounter all over Ireland.. You will feel like you landed on the moon in the desolate flat dry limestone fields. It is definitely an off the beaten path trip in Ireland.
