Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark
In 2011, the Burren & Cliffs of Moher achieved Geopark status, and is now recognised among the top 100 Geoparks in the UK and Ireland. A “Geopark” is defined as a region with outstanding geology, culture and heritage where people are working together towards a sustainable future through tourism and education.
The Burren Ecotourism Network and the management organisation of the Burren and Cliffs of Moher UNESCO Global Geopark enjoy a special relationship. Both organisations are committed to the promotion of responsible tourism that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people. Having agreed in late 2012 to pool their resources in pursuit of their common objective, they work together to promote ‘The Burren & Cliffs of Moher UNESCO Global Geopark’ as a leading sustainable visitor destination, celebrated for high standards in visitor experience, conservation and learning.
