The Burren in North Clare is renowned for its unusual landscape and its rich and varied flora & fauna. As a result of a unique combination of factors, Artic and Alpine plants grow side by side. The distinctive landscape includes bare limestone pav ements, caves, seasonal lakes and one of the most dramatic coastlines in Ireland-The Cliffs of Moher. Just 30 minutes by ferry and you can experience the beauty of The Aran Islands.
The area is also very well know for its archaeological sites, the best know monument being The Polnabrone Dolmen. Also close by are The Aillwee Caves with the Birds of Prey demonstrations on daily.
