Burren Hotel Breaks Clare

 

The Burren National Park is located in the southeastern corner of the Burren and is approximately 1500 hectares in size.

The Burren - Sheedy's Hotel, Co ClareThe Park land was bought by the Government for nature conservation and public access. It contains examples of all the major habitats within the Burren:

  • Limestone Pavement
  • Calcareous grassland
  • Hazel scrub
  • Ash and Hazel woodland
  • Turloughs, Lakes
  • Purifying Springs
  • Cliffs
  • Fen

 

 

The Burren is all things at once - rugged and wild, tranquil and serene, magical and mystical - such stunning contrasts. Take a walk on the beach, across the moonscape-like rocks, see wild flowers, touch megalithic tombs.

 

The Burren Community Charter started life with a proposal to the Heritage Council in support of a community led approach in building a charter for the Burren. Recognising the value of the proposal, the Heritage Council came on board and is now working with a number of Burren based organisationsin to help develop the idea further.
