The Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark

The Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark was the third Geopark to be designated in Ireland, having gained membership of both the European Geoparks Network and the UNESCO-assisted Global Network of National Geoparks in 2011.

The Burren comprises dramatic karst landscapes on Ireland’s Atlantic coast which have been fashioned in a variety of limestones, sandstones and siltstones originating during the Carboniferous period. The nearby Cliffs of Moher are vertical sandstone and shale sea-cliffs which rise to a height of 200m in places and which have long drawn sightseers to the area.

Inis Mor Island is conveniently located in the center of The Wild Atlantic Way. It is accessible from both Doolin (The Cliffs of Moher) and Rossaveal (Galway / Connemara). Sligo Galway  -  Connemara -  Doolin -  Cork
