Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark

Cavan Burren Park is located in the Marble Arch Caves UNESCO Global Geopark. But what is a Geopark?

Essentailly it is an area recognised by UNESCO (the United National Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation) as having exceptional geological heritage. Pretty impressive indeed! This means that Cavan Burren Park as part of the Geopark is a really good example of a natural landscape that provides good opportunity for education, has a particular scientific value and is pretty impressive to look at!
 
Geoparks are not just scientific though – they are also important for highlighting the culture, archaeology, wildlife and history of an area.

They also benefit the local economy and that can’t be a bad thing!

There are numerous sites to visit across the Geopark, from waterfalls and abbeys to mountains boardwalks and forests trails.
