The Burren

The Dolmen at PoulnabroneThe Burren (Great Rock) extends 25 miles from east to west and 15 miles from North to South. It lies between Galway Bay and the atlantic coast.

The Burren is a gently sloping carboniferous limestone landscape, broadly dissected by numerous joints running north to south.

In The Burren one can observe almost all the typical limestone landforms; underground rivers, swallow holes, glacial erratics, caves, clints, grykes and turloughs.

The flora & fauna are of great attraction too. The geologists and botanists amongst you will know that as the ice withdrew northward at the end of the last ice age (circa. 250,000 years ago), deposits of alpine flower seeds and soil were made in this area. The Mountain Aven, Bloody Cranesbill and Gentian should only be found halfway up the Alps - come and see them here.

Many wildlife species are unique to the area. The Burren Green butterfly is seen no where else on these islands. Explore it all - it's a wonderful place.
