The Cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher

stand facing the Atlantic ocean a short distance south. They are very impressive at over 200 mtrs high, and give visitors a good view over Galway Bay and the Aran Islands. O'Brien's Tower stands guard at one end and Moher Castle is situated at the southern end. The cliffs are home to numerous seabirds, including gannets, razorbills guillemots and puffins, and the area is a birdwatcher's paradise. The Cliffs can also be explored by boat from Doolin or by foot on the exciting cliff walk starting 10 mins. from the cottage! Regular shuttle buses bring you back from various pick-up püoints along the way. Doolin pier is also the starting point for the ferry to the Aran Islands, a day trip which shouldn't be missed.

Poulnabrone Dolmen The Burren

The Burren

are about 500 sq.kms of lunar-like limestone landscape and surely one of the wonders of this world. Its apparent bareness nurtures an internationally famous flora. [more on next page...] When Stone Age farmers settled in the Burren they found the area forested. By late medieval times the felling of timber and the grazing of cattle produced to-days skeletal landscape. Man has left a mass of evidence of having lived on the Burren for thousands of years. Material remains abound, includingmegalithic tombs, stone and earth ring forts, round towers,medieval churches, monasteries and castles.Burials took place in Poulnabrone and other dolmens over a period of 600 years from 5200 to 5800 years ago. The Burren coastline north of Doolin shows a dramatic and picturesque mixture of stone, beaches and a crystal clear blue Atlantic ocean. The Aran Islands are an extension of the Burren landscape. There are numerous caves, one of which is Doolin Cave, only a few minutes from the house. Ailwee Cave, near Ballyvaughan is also open to visitors. You'll get an inside look into the area and its mysteries if you visit the Burren Centre in Kilfenora. The Burren are great for walking and hiking.
