LANDSCAPE

Cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher in County Clare are Ireland’s most visited natural attraction with a magical vista that captures the hearts of one million visitors every year and are a Signature Discovery Point in the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way.

Standing 230 metres above the ground at their highest point and 8km long, the Cliffs boast one of the most amazing views in Ireland. On a clear day, the Aran Islands are visible in Galway Bay as well as the valleys and hills of Connemara

Buskers

An interesting factor to Galway, is its population of buskers.  Everyday various artistic people take to the streets to perform and play for the lovely people of music.  This is a unique factor to Galway and what gives Galway its utmost popularity.

Aran Islands

The Aran Islands lie just outside Galway Bay and just miles from the Clare coast and the Cliffs of Moher on the West coast of Ireland. Loved by every visitor, the Aran Islands are 3 of the most unspoilt Islands in the Atlantic. The last outpost of traditional Irish culture. Each of the Islands, Inis Oírr (Inisheer), Inis Meain(Inishmaan) and the largest Inis Mór (Inishmore) has its own individual character. All native inhabitans of the islands speak Irish. You’ll find ancient forts, churches and monuments on all 3 Islands. The flora and fauna is also different on each.

Kylemore Abbey

home to a community of nuns of the Benedictine Order who came here in 1920 after their abbey in Ypres, Belgium was destroyed in World War I. Settling at Kylemore, the Benedictine Community opened a world renowned boarding school for girls and began restoring the Abbey, Gothic Church and Victorian Walled Garden to their former glory.

Brigit’s Garden

Garden takes you on a magical journey into the heart of Celtic heritage and mythology, making it one of the truly outstanding places to visit in the West of Ireland. The award-winning Celtic Gardens are widely regarded as one of the most spectacular in Ireland, set within 11 acres of native woodland & wildflower meadows. In addition to the Celtic Gardens visitors can enjoy the nature trail, an ancient ring fort (fairy fort), thatched roundhouse and crannog, and the calendar sundial, the largest in Ireland.

Dunguaire Castle
