The "Burren" is a unique landscape, covered by vulcanic rocks, that seem to be artificially cut into giant cubes of different sizes, and inside the many gaps between these rocks you will find a big variety of tropical, subtropical, alpine and mediterranean plants and flowers.

NO-where else in the whole world you may find these plants growing togeather in a natural environment !

It is the combination of the grey rocks and the colorfull flowers that make the special atmosphere of the "Burren
Once in the Burren I was lucky to be able to watch a professional photographer taking pics of 2 vintage-cars there for the official Mercedes-calender.

Address: The Burren / County Clare
Directions: The typical landscape of the "Burren" may be found between "Black Head" and Ballyvaughan in the north and the Cliffs of Moher and Ennistymon in the south PLUS the 3 Aran Islands : Inishmore, Inishmaan and Inisheer.
