UNESCO World Heritage Site Discussions

Ireland currently has two Unesco World Heritage Sites, Brú na Bóinne and Skellig Michael, but the Burren along with another six sites is being considered for nomination, since appearing on the tentative list in 2010. The nomination of any of the sites on the tentative list for inclusion on the World Heritage List should only take place after consultation with relevant stakeholders, interested parties and local communities. 


 At the end of 2013 6 sites in England submitted technical evaluations for assessment by a panel set up by the English Government. The Lakeland Districts one was the only one that the panel recommended that the government should progress with. Download the evaluation submitted below.






A public meeting was hosted by the Burren Community Charter in Kilnaboy on 14th November 2013. This was a  response to the earlier meeting which was held in Dublin Castle on the 17th September 2013 to discuss all six of the sites on the tentative list.


The following are the presentations which were delivered in Dublin Castle in September.







The Burren is a truly unique place - presenting unique challenges and opportunities. The Burren Community Charter aims to allow the Burren community shape its own future, deciding for itself how best to address these challenges and opportunities.
