The Burren Tolkien Symposium

13:00 - 14:00
The Burren Tolkien Symposium will be hosted in the Burren with film screenings, writers, workshops, lectures, Burren inspiration walks, networking events for Tolkien Fans. Competitions and lots of fun events included.
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.
