We always rent a car a drive thru Ireland. The Burren is one of my favorite car trips. You can stop and photograph, walk around without feeling pushed by tour buses. Plus, you might luck up and find an unexpected ruin as we did today...it...More

We saw the Burren as part of a guided tour through Ireland. Although we did stop for a little bit for pictures, we didn't spend much time here so I can't recommend whether or not there's lots to do. But the landscape is very unique,...More

Just pull over when you just cannot stand to drive by another minute! This is a must see and do! Get out of your car and just walk, carefully, over the grey limestone rocks, flatter in some areas than others. The view of the Wild...More

We took part in the last nature trail of the season and it was a brilliant way to pass an afternoon. It was about two and a half hours of gentle walking although we had to be careful when going through the wooded areas and...More

This time in the Burren National Park we concentrated on Turloughs (a seasonal lake which all but disappears in high Summer). We visited a number of Turloughs near Cloone. While it was an inclement day, with the right wet gear we bet the weather and...More

Pick a clear day, keep your eyes on where your feet are, the trails are well marked and keep your nose on alert as you will smell the wild goats before you see them!

There are many hiking trails you can follow, rent a car and drive around. There are some nice little lakes with very clear water.

While on a coast to coast to coast bus tour of Ireland we passed through The Burren. It's 250 square kilometers of basically rocky terrain, dotted patches of flowers and plants, small farms with iconic stone walls and sheep in field, footpaths and hiking trails,...More

This is Ireland at it's best. The wild Burren landscape is a thing of beauty (as long as the sun is shining). The limestone pavements and hills are great to explore on foor or in the car. There are plenty of isolated spots to pause...More

Unfortunately we spent too much time looking for, and then following, the trail loops. The Visitor Center in Kilfenora has nice exhibits, but is little help when it comes to the trails. We finally found the small parking lot near Carran, but the trails are...More

There are no fees. A lot of what we did in the Burren was driving around and jumping out to walk around in interesting looking spots.
