On the west coast of Ireland we explore a trio of Counties: Clare, Limerick and Kerry. Discover a spectacular coastline with breathtaking scenery, magnificent cliffs and some historical and unique attractions.
The DINGLE PENINSULA is “always magical” and stretches for 30 miles into the Atlantic Ocean. This stunning peninsula is dominated by a range of mountains and has a coastline with steep sea-cliffs that are broken by sandy beaches, a region that has captivated poets, writers and filmmakers for generations. A local guide will join us on this day
FOYNES BOAT MUSEUM is a fascinating, unique aviation and maritime museum. Here you can discover the era of transatlantic passenger flights including a Flying Boat replica, the maritime history of the River Shannon and the port of Foynes. It’s also where Irish Coffee was invented.
The CLIFFS OF MOHER are one of Ireland’s most breathtaking natural wonders with magnificent cliffs that soar over 700 feet and have staggering views from the top. The cliffs are home to over 20 species of seabirds and rare flora – you may be lucky enough to spot a basking shark, seals or maybe dolphins. The Visitor Centre’s exhibition brings to life the story of the Cliffs.
BUNRATTY CASTLE AND FOLK PARK Set in 26 acres, this impressive park features over 30 buildings in a ‘living’ village with rural farmhouses, shops and streets recreated and furnished as they would have been in the 19th century. From the poorest one-room dwelling to the fine Georgian residence of Bunratty House. The castle is a large 15th century tower house and is the most complete and authentic Ireland.
