Hill Walks

The following galleries are of photos from hill walks we have taken over the past couple of years. Some are part of the National Loop Walks.

Mullagh More (from Mullach Mór or Great Summit) is in the Burren National Park. The Burren is one of the largest karst landscapes in Europe. Karst landscapes are made up of limestone pavement. The acid in rainwater eats away at the alkiline limestone to create crevices called grikes which form isolated slabs in the pavement called clints. This unique landscape is home to a number of rare plants and animals.

The Irish for the Burren, Boirinn is from the word boireann, a karst or rocky country.

Part of this walk is on the Mullaghmore Loop of the National Loop Walks.
