Hiking - Burren Way
Burren Ireland

The Burren Way is a relatively short walking route of 77km (49 miles) in County Clare on Ireland’s west coast. Offering superb coastal and interior walking following old tracks and green roads, the route combines quiet country walking with village atmosphere at Doolin and Ballyvaughan.

The Burren in County Clare is a National Conservation Area, an amazing limestone escarpment, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the Aran Islands and Galway Bay. Burren is an English word, derived from the gaelic “boireann”, a rocky place. But the Burren is shaped more by water than by rock. Underground, there are thousands of streams and rivers. It exists because it is perfectly balanced, at the edge of the sea, at the end of the land, made of rock that was once eroded from above and is now being eroded from below.

The trail starts at Liscannor and finishes in Ballyvaughan. Our route includes a loop walk around Black Head and village locations for each overnight stay. You will also have a chance to visit one of the Aran Islands on your free day in Doolin, which is the home of Irish traditional music.

The Burren Way follows old green roads and 25% of the hiking is on quiet country roads. On occasion it crosses the main tourist road. It is well signposted with wooden or stone brown markers and road signs. With superb walking and scenery, it is also the least remote of our tours as you are never very far from settlements.
