Keelhilla (Slieve Carron) Nature Reserve is located in the north-east edge of the Burren plateau and is a good example of karst topography containing three distinct vegetation communities including woodland, scrub, grassland and pavement. This NR has a variety of features and is suitbale for families with tracks for walking, etc. Slieve Carron is easily accessible by a track at the southern end of the cliffs where the hillside falls in large steps over a much gentler slope. The top of the mountain is a plateau with a cairn and spectacular views over the Burren.
