Cliffs of Moher and The Burren Daytrip
Why not take the time to discover one of Irelands most beautiful and untouched coastlines on the Wild Atlantic Way route. The majestic Cliffs of Moher tower some 200metres above the rolling North Atlantic and stretch almost 8 km long giving you a superb view of Clare’s rugged coastline and on a clear day the distant Aran Islands.
On your way you can breathe in the beauty of the Burren taking in the unique landscape and note the native flora and fauna indigenous to this special and protected area of Ireland.
The famous Aillwee Caves are also a place not to be missed. With such history behind them, the Aillwee Caves boasts one of the oldest caves in Ireland with over 3300feet of passages leading to the heart of the mountain where it is situated.
You will also pass one of the best examples of a megalithic tomb dating from 2500BC in the Poulnabrone Dolmen.
If you have extra time why not stop for a coffe break in Lisdoonvarna, a town famous for its annual Match making festival each September.
As you continue your journey you should take full advantage of the magnificent views of Galway’s coastline at Blackhead which is a great location to view the lighthouse of Galway Bay.
