Burren Boirinn

The region around Burren is one of the most peculiar and unique landscapes along the Wild Atlantic Way.
Surrounded by lush green pastures, strange, grey hills pile up reminding of a lunar landscape.
Rivers disappear and continue their way underground, huge, rocky boulders tower on stone plateaus – everything here seems a bit surreal.
But those, who spend a bit of time exploring this landscape, will realise that the region is not as bare and naked, as it may seem on first sight. In the crevices and trenches between the rocks, strange plants are growing, forming one of the most unique floras.
75 per cent of Ireland's plants can be found in this area – some of them arctic or alpine.
