The Burren Experience

A Tour of the Iconic Burren

The Burren is a vast memorial to a bygone age

This tour includes the most visited inland places in North Clare with emphasis on the Burren’s ancient monuments. We will start by exploring the 12th Century High Crosses at Kilfenora. Next we will stop at Leamanagh Castle and hear the intriguing folklore attached to the owner of this fortified tower and Tudor mansion.

At Kilnaboy: we will see the infamous ‘Sile na Gig’; a provocatively sculpted female figure set above the door of the ancient church here. We may make a short diversion to see the home of ‘Father Ted’ from a highly regarded and hilarious TV series.
The tour then takes us by a surprising phenomenon known as ‘Turlough’ or a disappearing lake.
‘Temple Cronan’, a 12th Century monastic site is next. It features an ancient holy well, an original shrine and some interesting burial tombs. This tour offers a real sense open Burren limestone landscape.
