Doolin

is a great fishing village and just 15 Minutes away. It has long been associated with great Irish music sessions, and was home to a great traditional Irish whistle player, the late Micko Russell. A visit to the Aran Islands is an unforgetable trip which you shouldn't miss. Boats leave several times daily from Doolin Pier.

The Burren

This fine example of a karstic terrain is famous worldwide because of a remarkable flora which can be found in its limestone landscapes as well as its rich archaeological heritage. The area hosts 70 wedge-tombs (the most famous of them being Poulnabrone), ring forts, caves (most notable Aillwee Cave and Doolin Cave) castles (Leamenagh Castle) and a network of field walls and hut circles. You can drive in and around the Burren on several roads, but the best way to really experience it is by foot or by bicycle! The green roads are the old Burren roads and are perfect to explore this landscape on short and long walks.
