Mullaghmore, the Burren, County Clare
Mullaghmore mountain sits in the very heart of the Burren National park; poetically described by John O’Donohue, author of Anam Cara as ‘…a sacred mountain’ whose folded shapes ‘evokes a poignancy and a sense of reverence. Once glimpsed it can never be forgotten.’ How apt then that local walking guide Tony Kirby of ‘Heart of Burren Walks’, in the guided version, brings us across this rare and unique landscape in Ireland as we begin on a famine relief road, built in the 1840’s by government-led schemes to pay and feed the starving populace, before striking out across the limestone pavement itself, giving wonderful views across the plateau, with wild flowers from different climatic regions flowering side-by-side. This is a fabulous walk through one of Ireland’s unique natural habitats.
