Need itinerary suggestions

June 12, 2008


My wife and I are staying in Ballyvaughan for 4 days w\a car. We know we will visit the Cliffs of Mohr and the Burren.

There are so many things to do I need assistance picking a few. We do not want to try to see everything, we would prefer to do a few things and really be able to enjoy them rather than rush from place to place. I would really appreciate some ideas and suggestions. Thank you.

    I have been told that The Burren Parfumery is very cool if you interested in herbs/wildflowers/soaps and things.

    You are lucky to have such a good amount of time around the Burren. It’s a place a lot of people only have a day, or less, to see, and while what they see is great it is only scratching the surface of a place that is complex and full of interest.

    With the time you have I would definitely set aside a day to do a walking tour of the Burren with an expert guide. Walking around the Burren, rather than looking at it from a car, is a totally different experience, and especially so in the company of someone who knows every crevice. Heart of Burren Walks and Burren Walks are both small local companies and their guides were mostly born in the Burren and know it intimately.

    In your case, with the time you have, you could easily take in Loop Head as well, and include a trip to Scattery Island.

    You can also get ferries from Doolin to the Aran Islands, so a day there is another possibility.

    I hope this gives you some ideas. You’ll love that part of Ireland, it’s wonderful.
