Liscannor, across the bay from Lahinch has always been one of our major fishing villages, and still retains an old world charm.
It is home to old fashioned pubs with a distinct Irish character. Liscannor's greatest claim to fame is it's most famous son, John Holland, who invented the submarine.
The famous Cliffs of Moher stand facing the Atlantic ocean a short distance north of Liscannor.
They are very impressive at over seven hundred feet high, and give visitors a high vantage point over Galway Bay and the Aran Islands. O'Brien's Tower stands guard at one end and Moher Castle is situated at the southern end.
The cliffs are home to numerous seabirds,including gannets, razorbills guillemots and puffins, and the area is a birdwatcher's paradise.
The Burren comprises approximately 100 square miles of bare limestone pavements, also known as Karst. In this lunar-type landscape one finds Alpine and Mediterranian plants growing side by side.

The Burren are perfect for walking, hiking and bicycling.
