Within a short drive of Burkedale, nestled in between the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland’s Ancient East is Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands of East Clare a magical place to uncover. Get active in nature and explore the region’s natural hidden treasures by exploring great walking trails, greenways, and woodlands. Enjoy pristine waterways with boating, fishing, kayaking & paddling and experience the beauty of the River Shannon as it settles into the picturesque Lough Derg. Every season delights the visitor with traditional music played all year round by world class musicians in every Community. The history of storytelling in Ireland is celebrated not only in song but is integral to the multitude of festivals embracing Irish Culture and Heritage; the Artists and Artisans are rivalled only by the spectacular nature and scenery.

The 12 O’clock Hills

The 12 O’clock Hills are part of the Slieve Bearnagh Mountain Range in East Clare, Ireland. Located 40 minutes from Burkedale House. Discover the 5k Heritage Looped Walk which is ideal for people with an interest in local history and requires a modest level of fitness or explore the longer 8.5k or 13K Looped Walk.  All 3 loops are scenic including pine needle covered paths through the forest with river and stream features.  The view expands on reaching the open mountainside near the top with 360-degree views of the villages of East Clare with West Clare and The Burren in the background.
