Map of Ireland's National Parks

The natural heritage of Ireland is rich and varied, and well represented through its national parks. Ireland has a wide diversity of habitats for its small size. Habitats of particular significance because of their scarcity both in Ireland and in the rest of Europe include:

  • Limestone pavements, calcareous springs and turloughs of The Burren.
  • The blanket bogs and active peatlands of Donegal, North Mayo and Connemara.
  • The ancient and semi-natural woodlands of oaks, yew and pine present throughout Ireland
  • The various sand and machair systems along South East, South West and North West coasts.
