On the other hand, a visit of our Burren Smokehouse visitor centre/Tasting Room is always possible during opening hours without any reservations.
The “Taste the Atlantic – Salmon Experience” does not necessarily require a reservation either unless you come with a bigger group. It is recommended to book it, however, so that you are sure to be able to visit our experience.
don’t need to print out the ticket.
One is our small private car park just west of the Burren Smokehouse.
The other (big public) car and coach park is near the bottle bank in the back of the Burren Storehouse/Roadside Tavern. You can easily find it on Google Maps. A little path leads down to another path. Turn right here and at the gate, cross the road and turn left to get to the Burren Smokehouse visitor centre.
City. Have a look at the Bus Eireann website to find out the departure times. The bus stop is just up from the Roadside Tavern, Burren Storehouse, Taste the Atlantic and Burren Smokehouse. When exiting the bus, turn left and simply walk down the road.
See more detailed information here.
You will find informative interpretation boards in all places of interest throughout the town.
Right opposite the Burren Storehouse you will find the small library which is the original building from the heydays of the spa era. It is right next to the magnesia well which can still be seen.
When you come back out from the library, cross the road and go through the little gate opposite leading into the park. You will come to a flight of stairs which lead down to the Twin Wells on the river. You can follow the steps up to your left to come to the site where the Church of Ireland building used to stand.
Continuing your way through the park (down and up the same steps again, then turn right), you will come past the old Pavilion from the 1920’s which was restored recently and is now Lisdoonvarna’s community hall.
Back onto the main road, turn right and cross the bridge. Right at the end of the bridge is the gate entrance to the Spa Wells & Gardens and the old Pump house from Victorian times. Well worth a visit as it is being maintained and explained by local volunteers. Depending on the time of year, you might be able to get into an interesting historical exhibition and the pump house itself with a tasting of the sulphur water.
If you have little children, a visit to the new playground in the park will go down a treat.
