The Burren Tolkien Festival
15 August 2014 - 24 August 2014
The Burren Tolkien Symposium is a celebration of the eerie beauty of the Burren area, which is believed to have been a considerable influence on J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic novel The Lord of the Rings. The untamed, rugged local landscape, including a cave known as Poll na gColm (pronounced ‘Pole na Gollum’), as well as elements of Irish mythology, may have provided inspiration for Tolkien’s creation of Middle Earth.
