Ballyvaughn is nestled in an unusal spot on Galway Bay called The Burren which means “rocky place”. This glacier which is left over from the ice age is a limestone mountain zone covered with wild flowers. It is also used as grazing land for cattle and sheep. There are trails for hiking and exploring this untouched landscape. The wind and rain can be formidable but the sun brings in spectacular colors and light that is breathtaking; all in the same day. It is a place for creativity and thought within an inspiring landscape. The Burren College provides each student with a 6 x 12 foot studio space.
