The Burren is a karst region in the west of Ireland, county Clare. The karst of this area is formed as the result of limestone deposits and recent glaciation. The white naked rocks full of cracks and fissures, hosting many rare plant species, offer a special walking experience.
The Burren Way only partly ventures on these rocks, because the area where the rocks lay bare on the surface is rather small.
A second highlight of this path are the spectacular coastal cliffs rising to over 200 meters. The many tourists attracted to this natural phenomenon, the Cliffs of Moher, only visit a stretch of a few hundred meters or so. Between cliffs and karst the path crosses a pleasant green farming area, with small villages, typical Irish.
The trail is easy. There are B&B's and hotels. The trail is marked and documented. A drawback can be that it mostly follows local roads, as is often the case with Irish trails.
