Carran, Co Clare
Walk the quiet roads of the Carron Polje - the largest karst depression in northwest Europe. This large hollow can be filled, very quickly, with a seasonal lake (Carron Turlough) when rainfall is high and groundwater wells up through underground springs. As the season dries it can empty just as quickly, as the water drains underground through subterranean channels and swallow holes.
Carron, Co Clare
Slieve Carran Nature Reserve is just north of the village of Carron and it is a favourite place for local people when visiting the Burren. The nature reserve contains a rich array of flora and fauna as well as historical features such as an old oratory and a fulacht fia. Parking spaces are limited.
Lough Bunny Nature Reserve, Boston, Burren, Co Clare
Explore the shoreline of this mysterious lake – where no streams flow in or out. Seek out the unique karst limestone features of freshwater lakes such as the peculiar egg-box shaped solution hollows. Here you stand between the ancient limestone pavements of the Gort lowlands which extend eastwards towards the Slieve Aughty mountains and the younger limestone hills which rise up to the west.
