4. The Burren
The Burren is the general name given to the fascinating limestone-layered fields of the 500 square kilometre stone-plated crown for North Clare and South Galway. An upside-down world of contradictions where rivers run underground through a honeycomb of caves carved by nature through low-resistance limestone; year-round pasture flourishes at rocky heights; Arctic, Alpine and Mediterranean plants grow side by side as strange flower-bed fellows in secret stone pockets and rocky wrinkles.
5. The Aran Islands
The Aran Islands are richly unique. Landscapes of limestone rock, a stretch of cliffs facing the moods of the Atlantic, large boulders, rock formations, and unusually clean beaches. It is also a place steeped in immense cultural heritage and history. Gaelic language is the first language of its residents. It is considered the foothold of Irish culture. The Islands themselves are an outdoor museum of artifacts of religious and cultural importance. The three Aran Islands, Inis Mór (Big Island), Inis Meáin (Middle island) and Inis Oírr (East island) are situated in a North westerly South easterly direction at the mouth of Galway Bay, Ireland. Ferries depart daily to the Aran Islands from Doolin.
