Follow the history and mythology of the Burren – an area with more than 90 megalithic tombs, portal dolmens, a Celtic high cross in the village of Kilfenora and a number of ring forts, all in the area. Taking one of the many walking trails is the best way to experience it all. You can book a walk with our guide and author Mr. Tony Kirby and go off the beaten track.
There are also free guided walks are held daily in the summer months – leaving from the Burren National Park Information Point in Corofin.
