The Burren
within 75 milesThe barren limestone landscape of The Burren showcases one of Ireland’s a natural wonders. The UNESCO-supported Global Geopark features a unique limestone karst landscape with exposed stone that provides a home for alpine and tropical plants that manage to grow side-by-side.

The Burren is also home to Ireland’s only handcrafted perfumery. The Burren Perfumery is not accessible to buses; so the shop, gardens, and tea room serve as an oasis for visitors traveling by car, foot, or bicycle.
