Burren in Bloom
01 May 2015 - 31 May 2015
The annual arrival of the Burren’s world famous wildflowers is truly spectacular - the Burrenbeo Trust’s Burren in Bloom festival is a celebration of this, opening the magic of this landscape to all.
Running from April 30th to May 18th in venues around the Burren, Burren in Bloom will feature a wide variety of events including walks, talks and cultural events, with a choice for all age groups.
Organised by the Burrenbeo Trust, a charity for the region, the events are sure to enhance your appreciation of the unique and beautiful Burren landscape.
‘Every year the amazing Burren floral bloom arrives to delight locals and visitors to the region. The Burren in Bloom festival gives people a greater appreciation for and knowledge around this natural phenomenon. This year’s festival promises to be the best yet, with events for all the family’, says Brigid Barry, Burren in Bloom coordinator.
With events during the month on topics ranging from dawn chorus to coastal blooms and wolves to grasses there is plenty to attract the outdoor enthusiasts. There is also a day long walk over the winterages and a family art event. This year there is a photo competition to find the promotional images for the event, entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 10th April.
