The word Burren comes from the Gaelic meaning “stony place”. We drove through close to 30 km of the Burren yesterday and it was breathtaking. These are just a few of the pictures…

What a gorgeously desolate place! I would love to see this someday…
It’s definitely worth the trip! I highly reccomend Ireland for little time away.
Leslee, your comment reminds me of what Buzz Aldrin said about the Moon: “magnificent desolation,” which in turn I was reminded of when I read “At The Dam” by Joan Didion.
Thank you, Chris! I’ll have to look up that Didion piece… I have always felt drawn to those hills and cliffs. I hope to make it there someday!
Third one down looks almost unreal. Beautiful work!
Thanks Chris! The ruins in that picture were some of my favorites that we came upon. It’s been an incredible trip.
