The Cliffs of Moher

The Burren, Cliffs of Moher & Aran Islands

The Burren region in Ireland is a unique lunar-like landscape that stretches across the west coast to the shores of Galway Bay. We believe that this windswept and wonderfully remote landscape is best explored on foot, at your own pace. Local walking trails and so-called ‘green roads’ lead you to some of Ireland’s most iconic sights, such as the Cliffs of Moher, the desolate beauty of the Aran Islands and two-million-year-old Aillwee Cave. Ancient sites can be found here, with ring forts, stone structures and tombs scattered throughout the Burren. County Clare seamlessly combines a rocky and barren moonscape with Irish culture. Local pubs serve freshly caught mussels, Atlantic seafood chowder and classic fish and chips. Immerse yourself in old traditions and join in with the locals during a trad session in one of Doolin’s famous music pubs. Strap on your walking boots and don’t forget your camera, this is a trip for the senses!
