The Burren Winterage Cattle Drive

October 24, 2021

Start: 11:00 am 

Finish: 3:00 pm

On a Burren farm near Tubber, Co. Clare. Exact location will be emailed to ticket holders closer to time.

On Sunday, the 24th of October, participants of the event will join the Burren Winterage Cattle Drive, a steep uphill walk with a Burren farming family as they walk their cattle to the winter pastures. 

This is a 4km walk with a significantly steep climb, mostly on a gravel road and a small portion on rough and uneven farmland terrain. A good level of fitness will be required for this walk. Suitable footwear, such as walking boots is essential and waterproof boots are recommended if the weather has been wet in the days prior to the walk. Please wear appropriate clothing for possible wet, blustery weather, including waterproofs.

Numbers are limited and pre-booking is essential.

There will be tea, coffee and scones on offer before the walk (we encourage you to bring your own mug!), and hazel sticks to help people on their way.

WARNING: NO DOGS ALLOWED.

Admission: €5 for Burrenbeo Members and Burren Pine Project Supporters / €10 for non-members. Children under the age of 12 go free but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
