The Aran Islands
These three stunningly beautiful islands are an off shore extension of the Burren and are one of the last out-posts of Gaelic civilisation where Irish is still the native language of their inhabitants. The islanders traditionally made their living from fishing. While the men were out fishing the women knitted the traditional 'Aran Ganseys'. Boats leave several times daily from Doolin Pier.

The Burren
The Burren, a great rocky expanse in County Clare, is one of the world's truly unique places in that it can supports Arctic, Mediterranean and Alpine plants side-by-side. Its ancient, awe inspiring stone structures hold secrets from the past that may never be unravelled. The area hosts 70 wedge-tombs (the most famous of them being Poulnabrone Dolmen), ring forts, caves (most notable Aillwee & Doolin Cave), castles (Leamenagh Castle) and a network of field walls and hut circles. The Burren Display centre in Kilfenora (20 mins.) provides an insight into the mysteries of the region and should be your first stop on your trip.
