One day walk in The Burren National Park.
This walk takes place in the stunning area around and on Mullagh More, a mountain which is characteristic of the limestone landscape which defines The Burren. Rising in steps and terraces to a height of 180 meters (627ft) at the summit and affording stunning views in every direction the views during this walk are breath-taking.
The walk begins through low scrub and hazel with views over a crystal clear lake to the iconic mountain rising ahead.The area sometimes described as a lunar landscape is when looked at up close packed full of a vast range of plants, plants from arctic regions.
We continue to climb and pass Lough Gealáin, the clarity and colour of this small lake is particularly striking and a great place for photos.
We also pass a Megalithic tomb, a reminder that there have been people in The Burren for over four thousand years.As we continue through the fossil rich stone we see the ancient remains of coral and small sea creatures, remains of a tropical sea from millions of years ago and numerous wild flowers, which variety depending on the time of year.
We get back to the road for collection and depending on time we may visit a small graveyard where the headstones show dates back into the distant past, with the names showing the families who have been here for generations.
