The Northwest of Ireland is a region of infinite variety, and paradise for sporting enthusiasts. Coming down from the northernmost tip of the island in Donegal to the counties of Sligo, Cavan, Monaghan and Leitrim the area is largely devoid of cities and fashions a more idyllic existence in the towns and villages. The region boasts some of the finest seafood restaurants in the country and the sight of the fishing fleet coming in at Killybegs is a wonder to behold. And if you’re the type of person who prefers to catch his or her own then the rivers and lakes of the North West, especially in Cavan and Monaghan, can cater to your need with a huge variety of fish.
The Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland’s top Visitor attractions. These cliffs rise more than 214 meters at their highest point, and and range for 8 kilometres over the Atlantic Ocean on the western seaboard of County Clare. O’Brien’s Tower stands proudly on a headland of the majestic Cliffs.
Standing proud in the stark landscape of the Burren Co. Clare, the iconic megalithic tomb at Poulnabrone is one of Ireland’s most photographed archaeological sites. Dating from the Neolithic period, this distinctive monument has revealed a wealth of information about the lives and burial customs of Ireland’s very first farming communities.
