Found throughout County Clare is some of Ireland’s most remarkable natural wonders. The Burren, a prominent location featuring in the Wild Atlantic Way driving tour. Made up from over 250 square kilometres of unique, almost alien landscape.
With rolling hills of limestone pavements crisscrossed and separated by deep cracks, called grikes. Varied types of plant life, and tropical species grow nowhere else at this latitude, thanks to its singular ecosystem.
The Burren is also home to several portal tombs, the most well-known of which, Poulnabrone Dolmen. The Dolmen means ‘hole of the quern stones’, dates back to between 4200 and 2900 BC. A 3.5-metre slab of limestone balanced on two upright stones about two-meters-tall and cover a ten-metre deep cairn, or burial chamber.
The Cliffs of Moher
The Burren reaches all the way out to sea but where it’s been cut off from the mainland, it forms the Aran Islands that lay in the water, intersected with ancient stone walls. And towering overhead of those islands, under relentless attack from the strong Atlantic tides, are the mighty Cliffs of Moher.
Measuring around 120-metres-tall at Hag's Head, right up to nearly 214 metres at their highest point just north of O'Brien's Tower. Built into the hill side, just back from the cliff-face, is the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre which exhibits interactive displays about the local history, geology, plants and wildlife.
