Nuala Mulqueeney, Aillwee Burren Experience

Nuala Mulqueeney is Managing Director of Aillwee Burren Experience – – a family run visitor attraction, that has been welcoming and educating visitors to and about The Burren since it first opened in 1976. After graduating from university and giving a career in banking some consideration, Nuala returned to The Burren to work within the growing Aillwee business. She feels very privileged, as this move allowed her own family to settle and continue to live in the region. Nuala is responsible for the continued success of Aillwee, keeping the ethos of sustainability and regeneration very much at the heart of all its activities and experiences.
