Walking The Burren Way from Lahinch to Corofin, you will be rewarded with panoramic coastal vistas along the iconic Cliffs of Moher, one of the most spectacular views along the Wild Atlantic Way. The Burren will open up on your way with its unique landscape, hundreds of acres of exposed limestone bedrock, interlaced with pockets of eco-systems supporting a diverse range of plant life. The word ‘Burren’ comes from the Irish word ‘Boíreann’ meaning a rocky place.

This popular walking route follows the impressive Cliffs of Moher from Hags Head along the coast to Doolin and Fanore, continuing to the most northerly point of Black Head, before turning inland on a mountain pass. It will immerse you in the eerie barrenness that is the Burren. Descending from Carnsefin 300m along a quiet rural road to Ballyvaughan, Carran and an abundance of ancient wedge tombs, dolmens, ring forts and castles on your route to Corofin.

Important: This tour will travel through a Gaeltacht (Irish Speaking) area some of the road signs may be in Irish.
