Perhaps Ireland's most famous caves, with visitors centre. You can take guided tours of the caves, and learn about the caves in the limestone rock of the Burren's karst landscape.
Ailwee Cave was formed by the glacial melt waters of an early ice age. The erosive power of the waters carved out an subterrainian river deep underneath Aillwee mountain. This river has subsided since the last ice age, leaving behind one of Ireland's most stunning caves.
Burren Birds of Prey Centre
The Centre is home to birds from all around the globe including falcons, hawks, owls, eagles and vultures. Each enclosure offers an opportunity to see, hear, and interact with these majestic creatures and learn about the ancient sport of falconry.
