The Burren & Cliffs of Moher UNESCO Global Geopark

UNESCO Global Geoparks are internationally recognised places with unique geology, landscapes, history and culture. Geoparks are managed with a focus on education, conservation, sustainable tourism and community engagement.
The Burren and Cliffs of Moher UNESCO Global Geopark offers a diversity that is second to none. There is the natural beauty of the 330 million years old limestone pavements and the rugged Cliffs of Moher, and there is splendour in the vast array of flora, including Arctic and Alpine flowers that grow surprisingly alongside Mediterranean species. There is also the staggering amount of history in the Burren with over 2,700 recorded monuments, some dating back over 6,000 years. Combined with its thriving musical, farming and food traditions, and the partnership approach to its management, this is a place that richly deserves its UNESCO Global Geopark Status.

Our Sustainable Journey

We work with the UNESCO Global Geopark to raise the standard of sustainable practices among tourism businesses across the entire destination of the Geopark and across all types of businesses. To achieve this, we adhere to the Geopark Code of Practice for Sustainable Tourism. The Code of Practice includes areas of good practice in energy, water, waste-water and waste management as well as working together, supporting our communities, understanding our heritage and contributing to conservation. Our commitment to this Code is what makes us unique as a Network and led to the success of the Lonely Planet Award 2021.
