We are situated in a very convenient location in Boston Tubber Co Clare. Just off the Wild Atlantic Way, 9km from Gort and just 10 minutes from the M18 Limerick/Galway motorway. Get yourself of the beaten track and experience the real Ireland….rural, rustic, remote and utterly breathtaking. From Gort you pass the amazing Kilmacduagh Monastery travel for another 5 minutes to discover our unique authentic Burren Farm and all we have to offer, finish off the day in the fabulous Burren Perfumery.
We are delighted to be part of such a forward thinking and environmentally concise network. Being members of the Burren Ecotourism Network acknowledges the great work laid down by the generation that came before us and as the number of stakeholders within the Burren Region grows, strengthens the common goals between all of passing on the values shared to us by our parents on to our children.

On a beautiful sunny day back in September we had the privilege of bringing local Archaeologist Michael Lynch and his daughter out to explore with us to say he was in his element is an understatement we started with an area we knew very little about and he certainly filled in the blanks! We have uncovered a settlement he said with one large dwelling house and other smaller groups of circular stone ruined structures which would have been a little community he said this was very typical of the time where they would farm the good land and live close by in the the rocky less fertile areas.
nice little mention in the irish times this week
