29. The Burren

The Burren is a rock-covered expanse in County Clare, Ireland, dotted with crude and enigmatic stone structures. Irish pubs are made up of crude and enigmatic gentleman (at least the good ones). Now does the name make sense? Of course the pints are right, but the Burren is extra special for the stand-up comedy, which is great even if you drink two Guinnesses instead of ten.
