Those who like remoteness will love Ireland’s far west. The vast heathland and moor landscape of Connemara, the stony karst landscape of the Burren or Ireland’s largest island Achill Island are incomparable places from which the excitement of modern times seems infinitely far away. The counties of Clare, Galway and Mayo have a diversity of landscapes that could not be greater. Here you will find the famous Cliffs of Moher, Ireland’s only fjord Killary Harbour, Clew Bay with hundreds of islets and Ireland’s sacred mountain Croagh Patrick. In villages such as Clifden, Kinvara, Lahinch, Oughterard, Roundstone or Westport one encounters pure joie de vivre – an extremely charming contrast to the tranquillity in the surrounding landscapes.
