The Burren (Irish: Boireann, meaning "great rock", Boirinn, the dative form, is the modern form used by the Ordnance Survey) is a karst-landscape region or alvar in northwest County Clare, in Ireland. It is one of the largest karst landscapes in Europe. The region measures approximately 250 square kilometres and is enclosed roughly within the circle made by the villages Ballyvaughan, Kinvara, Tubber, Corofin, Kilfenora and Lisdoonvarna. It is bounded by the Atlantic and Galway Bay on the west and north, respectively.
A small portion of the Burren has been designated as Burren National Park. It is one of only six National Parks in the Republic of Ireland and the smallest in size (15 kmē).

Lovely shot of The Burren. Our daughter is called Clar (the other is Kerry).
My husband discovered The Burren before me and I'm the Irish one!
You've captured the light on landscape so beautifully here.
Karst and alvar are new words for me, although one of our EPZ
member's avatar is ALVAR.
There is a wonderful Coffee shop/museum near Ballyvaughan
it you ever visit this area. I believe springtime is best to see
profusion of wildflowers on the Burren.
