2. Galway City
Galway is a jam packed town full of interesting things to do and see. It is the perfect place for a weekend break or a base in which you can explore the west of Ireland. Galway’s signature image has always been of the Claddagh, in the mouth of the River Corrib where it joins the sea. You can feed the swans or take an extraordinarily long walk out to the famous Salthill.
While visiting Galway, lots of people take the time to travel down to the cliffs of Moher, which tower over the West Clare coast. Enjoy the spectacular vistas over the Aran Islands and walk safely through paved pathways to see the famous cliffs. Their natural beauty and unique landscape has inspired many musicians and poets as they sit, relax and take it all in.
3. The Cliffs of Moher
Visiting the Cliffs of Moher is a magical experience like no other, especially on a sunny day. The cliffs are situated between the Burren on one side and the Wild Atlantic Ocean on the other. As you can imagine, the views are spectacular. The cliffs rise out of the Atlantic waters which makes them over 700ft high. The cliffs run along the coastline of West Clare for 14 kilometers. At the entrance to the cliffs there are a few shops and a café. Be sure to enjoy sipping on coffee whilst also taking in the views.
4. The Ring of Kerry
County Kerry is known for its beauty and is sometimes referred to as the Kingdom. The Ring of Kerry is no exception to this rule and is well worth a visit to discover its beauty.
