During the Cromwellian occupations of 1651-1652 Edward Ludlow wrote of The Burren “It is a country where there is not enough water to drown a man, wood enough to hang one, nor earth enough to bury him...... and yet their cattle are very fat; for the grass growing in turfs of earth, of two or three foot square, that lie between the rocks, which are of limestone, is very sweet and nourishing”. Encompassing 250 square kilometres this beautiful area of barren limestone rock in north County Clare has its origins in the ice ages. This amazing landscape supports Alpine, Mediterranean and Artic plants side by side and is also very rich in archaeological and historical sites with megalithic tombs, celtic crosses, ring forts and a number of historic church ruins. The scenic villages of Corofin, Kilfenora, Tubber, Kinvara, Balluvaughan and Lisdoonvara are all contained within The Burren area

“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.” (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
