On your visit to the Burren Centre, you will be invited to view a comprehensive film by world renowned environmentalist and much admired film producer, Éamon de Buitléar.
This film traces the story of the formation of the Burren 320 million years ago. Discover how the limestone pavement was formed, and why Alpine, Arctic and Mediterranean plants which require different climatic conditions grow side by side in such abundance on the fertile rock.
Éamon de Buitléar splendidly covers in film the unique interaction of the Burren’s seaboard with the Atlantic Ocean.
The Burren is one of the few areas in the world where a karst environment interacts with an Ocean.
The submarine life is wonderfully portrayed at the beginning of his film.
