The Burren & Cliffs of Moher Geopark
The Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark is an internationally designated area of geological interest in County Clare. It was the third Geopark to be designated in Ireland, and is recognised at both European and global levels. It is sometimes branded as "the Burren and Cliffs of Moher Global UNESCO Geopark."
The Burren comprises dramatic glaciated karst landscapes on Irelandís Atlantic coast which have been fashioned in a variety of limestones, sandstones and siltstones originating during the Carboniferous period. The nearby Cliffs of Moher are vertical sandstone and shale sea-cliffs, the highest in Europe, which rise to a height of over 200m in places and which have long drawn sightseers to the area.
