O'Brien's Tower, which was constructed in the early 19th century as a viewing point for Victorian tourists, is located on Moher's highest cliff.

Doolin Cave

Doolin Cave

Doolin Cave is one of Europe’s most compelling cave attractions. It is a truly authentic experience. ‘The Great Stalactite’ It is your only opportunity to see such a large free hanging stalactite anywhere in the world. From the moment you descend over 80ft into the first tunnel, with your guide, you will enter a world carved by water. Donning your hardhat, you will follow the rough-hewn route of the early explorers who first discovered the cave. When you enter the stunning, cathedral-like dome that houses the huge stalactite, you will be briefly plunged into a world of primitive darkness. Then, in a flash, you will be awed as the subtly-lit stalactite appears before you. And, far below, a magical stream carries to the hills outside, the water that carved the primeval world.

Dunguaire Castle

Dunguarie Castle was built in 1520 by the O’Hynes clan on the picturesque shores of Galway Bay. The Castle named after the nearby ancient fort of Guaire, King of Connaught who died is 662 AD. This 16th century tower house now restored sits on a rocky outcrop on the shores of Galway Bay, 300 yards outside the picturesque village of Kinvara
