Community & Business
Valuable information, connections and opportunities for local residents of the Burren.
As well as being a world-celebrated destination and unique site for visitors, it’s vital to recognise that the Burren and Cliffs of Moher region is a much loved and strong local neighbourhood for tens of thousands.
It is a vibrant home, a workplace, a community: a living, active place where families are reared; where work is done; where food is produced; where business is transacted; where farmers live off the land; where people explore and learn, and; where fun, culture and entertainment are ingrained in the local DNA.
Simply put, the Burren is a wonderful place that needs to sustain lives and livelihoods but it’s also a place that itself needs to be sustained with care and common sense. Local people are embracing that challenge.
Local people know we need thriving communities and a way of living that doesn’t harm our environment and culture. The reality is that one can’t exist without the other. We need a protected environment to ensure a prosperous local economy and a rich quality of life for all.
The Geopark organisation is working hard to play our part to ensure this happens for the local population. So whether you’re a local community, resident, farmer, business, school or interested group, the Burren and Cliffs of Moher organisation is your organisation too.
