Burren in Bloom

The Burren is in full bloom with a spectacular display of Gentians, Mountain Avens and Hoary Rock Rose alongside the more common spring flowers. The unusually early spring with weeks of warm sunny days has resulted in one of the best floral displays for many years.

  1. Beautiful collection of flowers. I have been looking-up books about wildlife in Ireland with a view to making a visit next year. It's all very enticing!
