Burren in Bloom
Burren in Bloom takes place in early June and is a festival celebrating the wonderful wildlife of the Burren as it emerges into its full seasonal glory of orchids and gentians, bumblebees and butterflies. There are walks, talks, workshops, demos and open gardens held throughout the Burren over the festival period. Events are either free or discounted for Burrenbeo members and some events require prior booking as numbers are restricted.
Burren in Bloom invites you to witness the colours, shapes, sounds, smells, and textures of nature first-hand in what is undoubtedly Ireland’s finest repository of native plants and animals. This is also an excellent chance to meet the people who work with these habitats – farmers, ecologists, conservationists, public authorities – and discover areas of the Burren rarely open to the public.
