Burren National Park Information Point

The Burren National Park Information Point is on the ground floor of the Clare Heritage Centre on Church Street in Corofin, Co. Clare.

It is managed by the National Parks and Wildlife Service (www.npws.ie) and is open to the public from April until the end of September. Newly refurbished in 2012, it provides information on the formation, management, flora and fauna of the Burren National Park. Entrance to the Burren National Park Information Point is free.

Our aim is to provide information on the Burren National Park and to promote conservation through awareness and education. Free walks, talks and activities suitable for all are organised on a regular basis. Guided walks for groups (4 people and more) can be booked in advance.

Visitors to the Information Point are welcome to try out our specially designed interactive tour app of the National Park’s White Arrow – Nature Trail.
