AN BHOIRINN is a visually stunning journey through the four seasons in the Burren, in the company of the people who have protected and cherished their heritage for over 6,000 years. 

Recognised throughout the world for its austere beauty, the Burren is a living landscape like no other and the series is a creative exploration of the life of this singular place, its people and how each season brings new surprises that delight and amaze all who encounter them.

Moving through the landscape in spring, summer, autumn and winter, each episode will capture what makes it distinctive, in a series full of visual wonder, revelling in the sights and sounds that embody the spirit, nature and inhabitants of this special place. Featuring a powerful and poetic script and wonderful music, the series is narrated by Diarmuid de Faoite, bringing to life the nature and spirit of the Burren.

“This ‘fertile rock’ has captured the imagination of people from all around the world for centuries. They are drawn to its otherworldly vistas of limestone grikes and klints and the unexpected delights of Alpine and Mediterranean plants and flowers growing side by side, studded throughout a landscape that is teeming with antiquity.

“The series explores this unique landscape with its custodians, the local community and those visitors who came for a while and ended up living here, somehow drawn by its indefinable magic. ,” said a spokesperson for the series.

TG4 will broadcast An Bhoirinn on Wednesdays from May 13 at 9.30pm on (repeated Sundays 5.40pm).
