					The West of Ireland is an enchanting place filled with wonderfully atmospheric towns and villages, long
stretches of stunning coastline, soaring sea cliffs, and craggy countryside that boasts a uniquely desolate
beauty and a vibrant cultural heritage rich in tradition.



Encompassing the counties of Clare, Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Limerick, Mayo, Roscommon, Sligo, Offaly
and Tipperary, the West gets under your skin like no other place in the world, offering an unparalled
experience to all who visit.



The haunting drama of the Donegal landscape includes the enchanting Glenveagh National Park and
Castle; Yeats’ County can be viewed from on high with a hike to the table top of Ben Bulben in County
Sligo; or you could try a different vantage point with an ocean voyage to the magical Aran Islands in
County Galway or Achill Island, County Mayo.



For those with a serious head for heights, nothing rewards more than a stroll along the magnificent Cliffs
of Moher, County Clare! A little closer to sea level, picturesque Lough Key Forest Park in Roscommon is a
haven of tranquility; while the legendary beauty of the majestic River Shannon stretching through the
cruising counties of Leitrim, Offaly and Limerick can literally take your breath away.



Serviced by no less than five regional airports, you can hop on a plane to Shannon, Galway, Knock,
Donegal and even nearby City of Derry airport to kickstart your holiday! So whether you want to soothe
your soul in utter isolation on a remote island or feel the passion at a high-spirited summer festival, the
wild and wonderful West has it all.
