Burren Ecotourism Network

Burren Ecotourism LogoThe Burren Ecotourism Network comprises a group of tourism providers in the Burren & Cliffs of Moher Geopark area who have worked together over an extended period to  promote the Burren as a premier international ecotourism destination. All Network members have compiled with the Burren & Cliffs of Moher Geopark Code of Practice for Sustainable Tourism Businesses.  Many have also obtained independant third party certification from a Failte Ireland recognised eco-tourism accrediatation label.  We offer visitors opportunities to engage with the protected landscape of the Burren in a manner which is sustainable both in terms of the environment as well as the community. Tourism businesses within the network are committed to local produce, conservation and the community, as well as to continuing high standards of sustainability, and offer a range of accredited, nature-based experiences. Our shared vision is that providing genuine ecotourism travel experiences in the Burren will ensure the sustainable development of its communities, environment and heritage.

When visiting us, you can expect to gain privileged insights and knowledge about the nature and culture of the Burren. You can also be assured that people involved in providing your holiday have adopted environmentally sustainable practices.

The Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience is a member of the Burren Ecotourism Network and actively collaborates with other local businesses to promote sustainable travel to the Burren that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people.

Following an independent audit and assessment of our environmental practices and policies, by Sustainable Travel International as part of their Sustainable Travel Eco-certification Program (STEP) the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience has received Silver level certification.

Members of the network include business involved in accommodation, activities & adventure, visitor centre, food producing, hospitality and health & wellness. Network businesses work together on alternative and exciting ways to encounter the wonderful landscape in which we are all based. The sumptuous Burren Food Trail and Food Mondays 2014 and Burren Adventure & Activity Fridays 2014 are perfect examples of these initiatives.  For more information on the Burren Food Trail and Food Series & the Outdoor Adventure & Activity Trail and Adventure Series see the section on Burren Ecotourism under Environment

Burren Ecotourism Network businesses involved themselves in conservation activity within their communities and organise clean ups, outreach schemes with schools and work with seniors groups.
