The Burren & Aran Islands

From: £Contact us

A week-long break to the Burren, an area best known for its unique and rich combination of Mediterranean and Arctic-Alpine flora, but also for its relics of ancient civilisations.

We explore the Burren's limestone pavement in search of its superb flora including spring gems such as fen violet and mountain avens, rare ferns in gullies, and enjoy the butterfly and bird fauna of the region too (the Burren is home to 80% of Ireland's butterflies). The Cliffs of Moher are home to seabird colonies, while cetaceans are often seen offshore. During a two-night stay on the Aran Islands we enjoy the flora and prehistoric remains, plus red-billed choughs and rare butterflies.
