Experience all the Burren has to offer!
Please check the hallway table in the cottage when you arrive for brochures etc., but in the meantime if you want to search the internet before your trip, we would recommend looking up the following sites to get a feel for what you might plan to do in the area. The notice board in the village Spar supermarket also lists everything that is happening in the area, it is worth a stop by to check it out. The tourist office is located in Linn gift store at the back of the village Spar shop. They are also very helpful with any information you might need during your stay.
Burrenbeo Trust is a landscape charity dedicated to connecting all of us to our places and our role in caring for them.
Literally steps from the house. Aillwee Cave is a cave system in the karst landscape of the Burren in County Clare, Ireland. The name Aillwee is derived from the Irish Aill Bhuí which means “yellow cliff”. Privately owned, it forms part of the Aillwee Cave and Birds of Prey Centre attraction.
The Cliffs of Moher are sea cliffs located at the southwestern edge of the Burren region in County Clare, Ireland. They run for about 14 kilometres.
The Burren Perfumery makes perfumes and certified organic cosmetics inspired by the beautiful Burren landscape. Lovely tea rooms too!
The cave’s most notable feature is the Great Stalactite. This is one of the world’s longest known free-hanging stalactites, reported to be 7.3 m (24 ft) in length. This figure is a matter of some confusion, however, as it is also variously described as being 11 m, 6.2 m and 6.54 m. It is the longest known free-hanging stalactite in Europe, the three largest in the world being located in two caves in Mexico and one in Jeita Grotto, Lebanon.
