A MULTI-DIMENSIONAL EXHIBITION OF A STONE-CARVED LAND
The Burren, with its innate sense of spiritual peace, has an extraordinary array of flora and wildlife, megalithic tombs and monuments older than Egypt's pyramids. This story is excitingly captured and impressively presented in 'A Walk Through Time' - a multi-dimensional exhibition. Beautifully displayed artefacts, original works of art, enthralling audio visual and interactive experiences, together with dramatic life-like reproductions of human activity, all combine to provide an insight into the rich history of the Burren. After a visit to The Burren Centre visitors are better prepared to interpret and understand the landscape through which they have travelled and so gain a deeper appreciation and respect for this stone-carved land.
This journey through time will take you back through millions of years when this area lay beneath a warm tropical sea. Follow the story of the formation of the Burren's lunar landscape where man hunted bear, and wolves roamed the forests. See how, thousands of years ago, man left his mark on the landscape in the form of Dolmens and burial chambers. Like the world-famous Poulnabrone Dolmen they still stand today - stone sentinels at the gates of our civilisation's history.
The Kilfenora Ceili Band Parlour, opened in 2014, provides a unique opportunity to trace the music and history of the internationally renowned Kilfenora Ceili Band. With the help of visual displays, musical instruments, artwork and acoustics, the music of The Kilfenora Ceili Band will visually and aurally come to life before you. The exhibition is in an intimate setting and will take you on a rare musical treat of the music of the new and old band...a musical journey of discovery not to be missed!
