The Centre offers the visitor a first class experience with a ‘must-see’ exhibition, tracing the music and history of The Kilfenora Ceili Band, a spacious gift shop and a country-style tea room.
A 12 minute film by world renowned environmentalist and much admired film producer, Eamon de Buitlear, traces the story of the formation of the Burren from 320 million years ago.
The ‘Walk Through Time’ exhibition traces the geological formation of the magnificent Burren region. The Burren Centre is truly a gateway to the Burren experience, in terms of its location in Kilfenora, and the comprehensive information it provides to those wishing to explore the Burren and its history.
Beautifully displayed artefacts, original works of art, enthralling audio visual and interactive experiences together with dramatic life-like reproductions of human activity all combine to provide an insight into the rich history and heritage of the Burren.
