We depart our hotel after breakfast for the wonderful Cliffs of Moher & the Burren. Rising from the sea to a height of 214 meters and running relentlessly for 5 miles, generations of visitors have not failed to be impressed by what many regard as their 8th wonder of the world.
The Cliffs are just beautiful and there are great walks here. As you and your snap happy camera take in the magnificent view, you can feel the full force of the Atlantic Ocean from the floor up. Some souvenir and craft shopping can be done here also.
When we are finished at the Cliffs we then travel along the famous Galway Bay into the typical Irish town of Ballyvaughan. Here we can have some nice lunch along the way.
Then it’s on to the nearby Burren Region, a limestone plateau with its treasure trove of geological and archaeological interests.
The Burren is home to many of Ireland’s most famous prehistoric monuments. After lunch we can visit Birds of Prey at Aillwee Caves, a personal favourite of mine, where you will see Falcons, Eagles, Owls, & Hawks all hunting for their dinner!
This is a great show that lasts 50 minutes. Next up is the Dolmen Graves which go back to 3600 B.C. These Neolithic graves are very typical in County Clare. We will then drive through the rugged Clare countryside and back to your accommodation.
