 Spectacular landscape on the west coast of Ireland

Early purple orchid Burren

The Burren is an area of spectacularly shaped limestone hills, which plunge down into the Atlantic ocean on the west coast of Ireland.

The Burren is a UNESCO World Heritage Area 

It is famous for it’s wildflowers and botanists from all over the world come to the Burren to see the wide range of orchids as well as all the other wild flowers.

There are relatively few people living in the Burren and the landscape has not changed much in the past thousand years.

Pristine Burren natural landscapes, with Expansive horizons 

 Stunning Biodiversity

The wide range of wildflowers attracts many types of butterflies and insects which in turn support a wide range of bird life. 

The wild goats play an important part in the biodiversity and they keep down the scrub and hazel tress, so that the wild flowers can flourish during the Spring and Summer months.

The limestone hills heat up during the Summer months, and slowly emit their heat over the Winter months. 

Combined with the fresh warm air blown in over the Gulf Stream, this produces a very mild climate in Winter.   It is often 5 degrees warmer in the Burren than in Dublin during the Winter.

The Burren is the only place in Ireland where the farmers leave their cattle outdoors during the Winter.

The sea is noticeably warmer than the east coast, and many swimmers look forward to refreshing swims on our retreats.
