The Burren has so much to offer: walking, flora, fresh air, scenery, wildlife, lakes and the wonderful limestone landscape. There are many Loop walks to enjoy or your own self designed walk. Take your time and enjoy.

When I planned our trip for 4 couples, I read about The Burren, but thought there were so many other things to see that we probably wouldn't go here. However, to my surprise, it was along the route you take from Dingle to Galway. I...More

The Burren is an area but this is focused on the national park. It's really more of a cross-roads between a small narrow road and a tiny one. But the scenery is beautiful and stark. You actually have to work a bit to get off...More

Drive through it going from the cliffs to Galway. Some on here found it boring rocks but I saw it as an intriguing landscape, very different to the rest of the country. Went via kilfenora (a Burren centre there to explain why it's different) then...More

This stark and rocky landscape is a must see for those who want to get a feel for the land in this part of the world. Well worth the drive and a couple of hours to walk around.

The Burren was listed as the top 10 Most Beautiful places to visit, but I disagree. It is barren and boring. We parked our car and walked a trail just because - the trail ended at a little cottage that offered tea and biscuits that...More

Worth a visit, especially the medieval ring fort and the Poulnabrone portal tomb. I was happy that we were with a tour bus and not trying to navigate the small winding stone wall sided lanes that cut through the Burren. Desolate and wild, one can...More

Beautiful landscape, unspolit and quiet, roads not nearly as busy as Kerry or Galway, well worth a drive to enjoy the scenary - bring a picnic!

If you like to see a large flat area of exposed rock, this is the place for you. In my opinion, pass this one up.
