GeoparkBurren & Cliffs of Moher
UNESCO Global Geoparks are internationally recognised places with unique geology, landscapes, history and culture. Geoparks are managed with a focus on education, conservation, sustainable tourism and community engagement.
In 2011 the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher gained Global Geopark status. Already spectacular neighbours, their coming together formed a destination of natural wonders. Making up over 530 square kilometres, the Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark offers diversity that is second to none. This rich and alluring landscape of staggering sea cliffs, limestone karst terraces, fertile valleys, vibrant villages and welcoming communities offers some truly inspiring experiences.
The Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark not only has outstanding natural and cultural heritage but it also has a management organisation that supports its people and organisations to work together to ensure a cared-for landscape, a well understood heritage, more sustainable tourism, a vibrant community and strengthened livelihoods.
