Discover the unique magic of the Burren Region in ‘A Walk Through Time’ at the Burren Centre.
Located in the historic village of Kilfenora the Burren visitor centre encompasses an exhibition, audio visual film theatre, craft shop and tea room.
Ireland’s first Interpretative Centre rebuilt on the site of the old school and situated beside the ancient Kilfenora Cathedral. We now invite you to explore the flora, fauna, geology, legends, archaeology and natural history of the Burren in the Burren Centre.
The Burren, from the Gaelic word “An Bhoireann” is an area close to 125 square miles of limestone rock covering imposing majestic mountains and tranquil valleys with gently meandering streams. This is a geologically distinctive landscape on the Western seaboard of Ireland and has been inhabited for over six thousand years.
With its innate sense of spiritual peace, extraordinary array of flora and wildlife, and megalithic tombs and monuments older than Egypt’s pyramids, the Burren creates a tapestry of colour and a seductively magical aura which few people leave without wanting to experience again.
