The Burren National Park
The Burren National Park is located in the southeastern corner of the Burren and is approximately 1500 hectares in size and will be clear to see on your trip to the Cliffs of Moher.

The Burren region is famous for its landscape and flora, which can be best seen during the summer months. It is during these months that visitors can see a colourful diversity of flowering plants living together within one ecosystem. Arctic-alpine plants living side by side with Mediterranean plants, calcicole (lime-loving) and calcifuge (acid-loving) plants growing adjacent to one another, and woodland plants growing out in the open with not a tree nearby to provide shade from the sun. The Burren region is something that must be seen to be believed and covers 1% of the land surface of Ireland.
