The Burren has been welcoming visitors since the early 1850s when the first hotels were built around the Lisdoonvarna spa wells.
It is a place of tradition, music, adventure and great local food. It is where the Atlantic meets Europe, its ferocity matched by its richness and its fertile rock. The vast, Karst landscape, created where limestone is dissolved by acidic rain and groundwater makes it one of Ireland’s most compelling landscapes.
When you come to North Clare and stay, you will see why the locals cherish and protect this award-winning destination and will leave you wishing you stayed longer. Today, it is an internationally-recognised sustainable tourism destination.
