Set on a 50 acre organic farm, Burren Nature Sanctuary is a nature lovers paradise and a wonderful introduction to the magical Burren landscape, flora and fauna.

The mile-long nature trail meanders through Burren habitats of karst limestone, ancient hazel and ash woodland and the organic wild flower meadow, home to majority of Ireland’s butterflies.

 

Stroll through the hedgerows of native Irish trees lining he ancient green road (boreen) in the footsteps of our ancestors who once led their their animals to the rare tidal disappearing lake (turlough).

 

Visit the Botany Bubble which houses the National Collection of Burren flora where seasonal Alpine, Mediterranean, Arctic and tropical plants grow alongside native Irish wildflowers.

 

Meet Cookie the donkey and Frisky the feral Burren mountain goat.

 

Relax in the Sanctuary Café and Waterfall Tea Garden enjoy fresh, local, seasonal food, good coffee, healthy children’s menu: no fizz, no fry, hidden vegetables!

February to May – open 10am to 6pm Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
