The Shannon Estuary

The mouth of the Shannon – Ireland’s longest river – is home to many species of animals. For example dolphins live and procreate here on a permanent basis.

People also used to live in the middle of the Shannon Estuary on Scattery Island to be exact. Ferries run from Kilrush to the island. There are ruins of a monastery, a well preserved round tower, a garrison and an abandoned settlement to be found on the island.

There is also a ferry that crosses the Shannon Estuary and brings you on to the Wild Atlantic Way along the wonderful coast of North Kerry near Ballybunion – a popular holiday town with sheer cliffs and beautiful sandy beaches.

The Burren and West Clare

The first part of this stage of the Wild Atlantic Way has the effect of making you wonder if you have been beamed on to another planet. The reason being the landscape – this fascinating karst landscape. The rolling hills of the Burren are composed of limestone pavements. The translation of the Irish name „An Bhoireann“ means great rock and this hits the nail on the head in this unusual region.

The world renowned Cliffs of Moher are over eight km long and tower imposingly over the mighty ocean at the highest point with 214 metres. They are especially dramatic when seen from the water.

Not far from the impressive cliffs you will find Kilkee in the heart of West Clare. The Loop Head Drive takes you within metres of the cliffs along the rocky coast of Clare. The rock formations are up to 80 metres high and brace themselves against the turbulent Atlantic time after time. There are no souvenir shops to be found here not like at the other famous cliffs we mentioned a moment ago!
