The Burren is situated in north-west County Clare.
The name comes from the Gaelic "Bhoireann" - it means "a rocky place" and as you can see on the lower photo,
this is a really rocky place. But as you can see on top photo - there are not only the rocks (it has also the green valleys).
The Burren is a gently sloping carboniferous limestone landscape which has suffered intense glaciation,
the last occurred as recently as about 10,000 years ago.
