Self Catering Holiday Homes in the Burren, Co. Clare
It is a unique region which was largely sculpted over the last two million years through the exposure and submergence of its landscape to ice, ocean and the plate movements of the earth. The result is a splendid, distinctive limestone terrace and pavements formed over the millennia like steps of stairs across the hillsides. Our seaside holiday accommodation situated adjacent to the Flaggy Shore where the Burren meets the Atlantic Ocean is a wonderful base for exploring this unique landscape.
On your next self-catering holiday in the Burren learn about this magical landscape the ideal habitat for the amazingly diverse array of plants and wildflowers. Here alpine and arctic plants grow side by side with Mediterranean species. Over 70% of Ireland’s 900 native plant species are found here. No wonder then botanists and geologists from all over the world come to visit this fascinating region.
Many photographers, artists and writers stay in our holiday accommodation because of its almost mystical quality, with ancient tombs such as the Portal Dolmen evidence of ancient druid customs.
The Burren is framed by the Atlantic Ocean, where the limestone plateau reaches the sea all along the coast from Ballyvaughan to Doolin, by the strands at Bishop’s Quarter and Fanore. The Flaggy Shore close to New Quay is one of those regions in Ireland, which you will want to return to, again and again. A truly magical holiday base on part of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way.
