Burren Farm Experience
"Farming is integral to the character and composition of the Burren. The ancient transhumance practice of winter grazing on the rough limestone grasslands has been proven to be critical to the health and diversity of the habitats and species therein" - Bronagh O'Rourke
Join Bronagh, Cathal and their young family on their 500-acre farm in The Burren National Park. Here you will get to experience something very unique and spectacular to even the most travelled eyes.
Enjoy a tractor ride through this special farm tour, witness mixed species-rich grassland, hazel scrub, deciduous woodlands and glaciocarst limestone pavements. All this combined is completely unique to the Burren terrain and this farm is the first of it's kind.
Take a hike with your guide through up to 8km of the National Park to Lough Bunny as you are educated along the way of the passing livestock and historical remains of the area.
You will also experience a "Rustic Picnic" of sandwiches, scones and a selection of teas, coffee and water.
This is a must-see for all visitors to the area.
