When Burren Junction bore bath opens for the winter months, the town comes alive with expectant tourists wanting a relaxing, therapeutic dip in the hot artesian water. The water flowing from from the bore bath, which was sunk in 1921, maintains a constant temperature of approximately 41.5 degrees celsius. It is a popular meeting spot for visitors and locals.
