The audiovisual experience traces the formation of the Burren 320 million years ago and explains why Alpine, Arctic and Mediterranean plants grow side by side in this limestone world.
Hear about how wolves once roamed the forests and how people left their mark on the landscape in the form of the dolmens and burial chambers, which still stand today as stone sentinels to the Burren's heritage.
