The Burren is one of the largest Karst landscapes in Europe. It is a geological phenomenon and is a place of outstanding natural beauty. A small portion of the area has been designated to the Burren National Park and is hugely popular with walkers, hikers and mountaineers. The Burren is rich in historical and archaeological sites with fantastic megalithic tombs, ring-forts and even a high Celtic cross.
Doolin is a charming coastal village in County Clare. It is a place of breath-taking beauty and is renowned as the centre of traditional Irish music in Ireland. Due to its location it is ideal for outdoor activities such as surfing, fishing, walking, cycling and rock-climbing.
