The Burren:
The Burren derives its name from the Gaelic "bhoireann" which means "a stony place". The stone in question is mainly carboniferous "karst" limestone. Hundreds of thousands of years old, it defines the unique landscape surrounding the College - in strange, yet beautiful, bare and fissured terraces than many compare to a moon landscape, which hide a myriad of caves beneath. Though bare at first glance, the stony outward face of the Burren is far from barren. Within the many crevices and cracks, which punctuate its craggy pavement hills, grow some of the world's rarest flowers. This remarkable terrain is also home to a rich variety of fauna. Its equally lively bird and marine life is interesting too for the sheer diversity and quantity of species.

Location:

Ballyvaughan, just 2km from the College is a lively coastal village with excellent restaurants, craft shops and music-filled pubs, which has a thriving community spirit. This small village has a cosmopolitan population, which includes numerous artists, writers and musicians. There are numerous places to eat out or socialise locally, a number of them being pubs or bars. The Burren is a centre for traditional Irish music, and music can be heard in pubs and bars throughout the year, particularly in the summer months. It is possible to join in traditional Irish dancing locally and students are always welcome at set dancing evenings in nearby Kilfenora. The College is a 4 hour drive from Dublin by car, 1 hour from Galway and approximately 1.5 hours to Limerick.
