The Burren and Cliffs of Moher

UNESCO Global Geopark
We are a UNESCO Global Geopark because we adhere to the UNESCO criteria to celebrate heritage while conserving cultural, biological and geological diversity, and promoting sustainable economic development.
 
We do this in the following ways:
 
  • Our landscape tells a fascinating geological story that spans over 330 million years.

  • Only here can you find an extraordinary botanical combination of Artic, Alpine and Mediterranean flowers growing side by side.

  • We have over 3,000 archaeological monuments that record 6,000 years of history.

  • We have farming and musical cultural traditions that are thriving and celebrated.

  • Local communities feel a deep connection to their landscape, history and culture and have a strong desire to manage this in a sustainable way for the benefit of all.

  • The Geopark manages a Code of Practice for Sustainable Tourism Business, which the Burren Ecotourism Network commits to using.

  • The Geopark is managed by Clare County Council in partnership with local communities, tourism businesses and organisations and government agencies.
 
The Burren and Cliffs of Moher became a member of the Global Geoparks Network in 2011.
 
Global Geoparks were inscribed as UNESCO designated sites in 2015.
 
UNESCO Global Geoparks go through a rigorous revalidation process very 4 years. The Burren and Cliffs of Moher UNESCO Global Geopark was last revalidated in 2019.
