Day 1:  Panoramic city,Burren,Cliffs of Moher

The awe-inspiring Cliffs of Moher, standing 8km long and towering 230 meters over the Atlantic Ocean , are the quintessential emblem of Irishness, making them one of the country’s most visited attractions.On a clear day the fabulous views from O’Brien’s Tower includes the Aran Islands , the mountains of Connemara and the lighthouse at Loophead.There are few more striking places in Ireland than the majestic limestone landscapes of the Burren. The lunar landscape there has evolved over the years into a unique botanical environment where Mediterranean and alpine plants grow side by side. Along with the amazing mix of flora and fauna it is also home to some of Ireland ‘s rarest wildlife, including the elusive pine martin.

The Burren has also been home to ancient civilisations, the area is dotted with over 2,500 historic sites, including castles, round towers, stone arches, and the 5,000 year old Poulnabrone Dolmen.

Day 2:  Aran Islands

The Aran Islands are a group of three islands located at the mouth of Galway Bay off the west coast of Ireland.
The largest island is Inishmore also known as Aranmore. The middle and second-largest is Inishmaan and the smallest and most eastern is Inisheer. Irish is a spoken language on all three islands, and is the language used for the names of the islands and many of the island’s villages and place names.

Approximately 14 kms (8.7 miles) in length and 3.8 kms(2.4 miles) in width, Inishmore is a walker’s paradise. Feel the peace and listen to the silence, between sea and sky, on craggy cliffs or all along a quiet, indented coastline. Aran has an abundance of wildlife and some 437 varieties of wild flowers. If pedalling is your pleasure hire a bike in Kilronan village and meander at will around this lovely island or take a pony and trap, or a guided tour with a modern minibus, from the pier.

Visiting Aran
You can travel to Aran by ferry boat, directly from Galway City Dockside (90 minutes), Ros a Mhil (Rossaveal) in Connemara (35 / 40 mins), Doolin in Co. Clare (20 mins) or by air from Indreabhan (Inverin) under 10 mins.
You can cycle or see Aran on horseback along the pathways of history on this unique island. Swim in unpolluted seas, study rare flowers and wildlife, write, paint, take pictures, fish for a specimen or just relax, unwind and learn spoken Irish in this bilingual community. And when the Celtic twilight comes, drop in for a quiet pint, or enjoy a wealth of Irish music and dance, at a village or spontaneous session in an Island pub.

The Park lands are now wholly owned by the State and managed solely for National Park purposes.
