Carron, Co. Clare

Carron (The Cairn) is a village in County Clare, bounded on the northwest by county Galway and on the south by Slieve Carron, one of the highest points in the Burren. When one reaches the top of this mountain it will all be worth the climb to see the magnificent views of this unique countryside. The cliff-bound valley of Kilcorney, 7k away, is characteristic of the area.

This village's claim to fame is the fact that it is the birthplace of Micheal Cusack, the inspirer and co-founder of the Gaelic Athletic Association.

Within 8km (five miles) of the village are The Burren Perfumery, Caherconnell Stone Fort, poulnabrone Dolmen, a Turlough (disappearing lake) and miles and miles of beautiful lunar limestone scenery.
