The Burren & The Aran Islands

The unique, karstic limestone region of Co. Clare, known as The Burren, is an ideal area to tour on bicycle. The word "Burren" means "rocky place" and here you will see acres of beautiful, though sometimes haunting, limestone pavements. This striking landscape comes to life in Spring with beautiful wild flowers that are unique to this region of Ireland. This area is dotted with a number of ancient tombs and stone forts that can be visited en route. The tour will take you along quiet roads to remote corners of the Burren and along the coast where you can enjoy panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the spectacular Cliffs of Moher (203m). The tour will also take you to the remote Aran Islands whose small fields, surrounded by labyrinths of oddly-shaped stone walls, are a joy to explore by bicycle. On Inishmore you can also visit Dun Aengus, one of Ireland's most spectacular pre-historic sites. At night you will be able to relax in region's many charming towns and villages famous for their traditional music and warm hospitality.

The Burren

“After two days' march we entered into the Barony of Burren, of which it is said, that it is a country where there is not water enough to drown a man, wood enough to hang one, nor earth enough to bury him" Cromwell's man in Ireland, 1651.
