These awe-inspiring, rigid cliffs stretch 8 km and stand 214 metres (702 feet) high − their edges dropping into the wild Atlantic Ocean. Despite the prevailing winds, nearly 20 species of birds can be found during nesting season. Inside the visitor centre, you’ll find interactive exhibits, displays, aerial tours and a virtual reality cliff face adventure, The Ledge.
As you travel through the Burren, listen to your expert driver/guide share information and history of Galway and surrounding area. Exit the coach to visit windswept landscapes independently and explore Ireland’s exposed limestone terrain, jagged cliffs and untamed Atlantic Ocean. Following the featured stops of the trip, you’ll travel back to Galway along the Wild Atlantic Way, offering many photo opportunities of the coast – so keep your cameras ready!
A full day, guided tour of Connemara, an area famed for it’s unspoiled natural beauty and rugged landscapes. As you travel from Galway, listen to your expert driver/guide share the origin of the Irish language and how it is still the native language of Connemara, despite its diminishing status in the rest of Ireland. Exit the coach to visit iconic Irish landmarks independently and discover rivers and lakes that flow off The Twelve Pins Mountain Range to naturally shape this majestic region. You’ll surely see reasons why Hollywood directors chose Connemara as backdrops to movies such as The Field (Written by John B. Keane, starring Richard Harris and John Hurt) and most recently, Marley & Me (Starring Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston).
Choose 1 island to visit: Inis Mor, Inis Meain or Inis Oirr.
From the traditional pubs, prehistoric Christian forts and heart warming locals, it’s not hard to wonder why this is the most popular of the Aran Islands. Explore the patchwork fields on foot, take a guided tour from a local resident, or hire a bicycle for the day for something a bit more independent. There is plenty to do and see whichever path you choose!
Inis Mór, the largest of the 3 islands, is home to 30,000 day-trippers in the summer months. Yet only about 900 people call this island home. Be sure to visit Ireland’s most important prehistoric monuments, Dún Aonghusa, sitting dramatically a top 100m cliffs that drops into the Atlantic Ocean. When along the coast, try to see if you can spot the resident seal colony!
Inis Meáin is the center (or middle) Island which lies quietly between its big brother, Inis Mór, and its smaller brother Inis Óirr. Certainly the quietest of the three islands, Inis Meáin remains a hidden gem. The main industries on the island consist of fishing and sheep raising.
Upon arriving to Inis Oírr, you’ll be greeted by golden sandy beaches, turquoise water and maybe even the island’s resident dolphin, Dusty! This tranquil collection of fishing villages is also home to a burial mound dating back to 1500 BC, a Medieval Church ruin buried half in the sand, and a 3-story tower built within a Stone Age fort. Among the shore, you’ll encounter a shipwreck from 1960, breathtaking views of Connemara and the Burren, and one of Ireland’s most beautiful beaches. Whichever path you take on the island, you’ll be sure to stumble upon history, traditions and a good cup of tea.
