Located in north east Ireland, the Boyne Valley is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is home to some of Europe’s largest and most important megalithic sites from the prehistoric era. The Loughcrew hilltops and banks of the Boyne River are home to huge burial tombs and Neolithic passage tombs such as Downth, Knowth and Newgrange are older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids making them a popular attraction.
One of the most spectacular natural attractions in Ireland, the Cliffs of Moher were created by five different layers of stratified rock deposits which are still visible in the cliff face to this day. Rising up out of the sea for 8km, the cliffs reach more than 216m at their highest point and offer stunning views of the Connemara mountains, Kerry mountains, Loop Head lighthouse and Aran Islands on a clear day.
The Aran Islands are a spectacular group of three island off the coast of Clare and Galway county. The three islands, known as Inishmór (meaning 'Big Island'), Inishmaan ('Middle Island') and Inisheer ('Eastern Island'), are an extension of the Clare’s Burren limestone escarpment and feature lush vegetation, jagged cliffs pounded by surf and a number of ancient forts, some of Ireland’s oldest archaeological remains.
