Walking Ireland's West Coast

  • Discover the natural beauty of the Burren on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Coast
  • Puffin spotting at the Cliffs of Moher, one of Ireland's most iconic views
  • Enjoy locally caught fresh mussels, seafood chowder and North Atlantic prawns
  • Island hopping and coastal walking on the remote Aran Islands
  • Listen to live trad sessions in Doolin, Ireland’s music capital
The Burren region in Ireland is a unique lunar-like landscape that stretches across the west coast to the shores of Galway Bay. We believe that this windswept and remote landscape is best explored on foot, at your own pace. Local walking trails and so-called ‘green roads’ lead to some of Ireland’s most iconic sights, such as the Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands and two-million-year-old Aillwee Cave. Ancient sites can be found everywhere, with ring forts, stone structures and tombs scattered throughout the Burren. Local pubs serve fresh mussels, Atlantic seafood chowder and classic fish and chips. Immerse yourself in old traditions and join in with the locals during a trad session in one of Doolin’s music pubs. Strap on your walking shoes and don’t forget your camera, this is a trip for the senses!
