The Burren

Found throughout Co. Clare are some of Ireland’s most remarkable natural wonders, as well as some of its most ancient discoveries. The Burren, a prominent location featuring in the Wild Atlantic Way driving tour, is 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, that support incredibly varied types of plant life, including some tropical species that 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 which means ‘hole of the quern stones’, dates back to somewhere between 4200 and 2900 BC. The lid is a 3.5-metre slab of limestone balanced on two slim, upright stones about two-metres-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.

The Cliffs of Moher are also one of the many highlights that can be found along the Wild Atlantic Way, and this airport is the ideal starting point for those looking to pick up a car hire Shannon Airport to begin their Wild Atlantic Way adventure nearer the middle of the tour, as opposed to beginning in Donegal or Cork.

The river mouth offers many opportunities for water sports, pleasure boating, and fishing, particularly salmon, brown trout, sea trout and eel angling. Shannon Estuary Drive is a 207km loop developed by FĂ¡ilte Ireland.
