Joyce Country Sheepdogs
There’s never a dull moment at this effervescent modern art gallery , which seems to have a bottomless pit of inspiration when it comes to wit. Works vary between the profane, the beautiful and the moving but are never mundane. The owner is a fountain of local knowledge; ask to see the card showing what happens before and after you drink Guinness.
Cliffs of Moher
Forming the southern end of the Cliffs of Moher, Hag's Head is a dramatic place from which to view the cliffs There's a huge sea arch at the tip of Hag's Head and another arch visible to the north. The signal tower on the head was erected in case Napoleon tried to attack on the western coast of Ireland.
One of Ireland's most famous prehistoric grave sites, Gleninsheen lies beside the R480 just south of Aillwee Caves near Ballyvaughan. It's thought to date from 4000 to 5000 years ago. A magnificent gold torc (a crescent of beaten gold that hung round the neck) found here and dating from around 700 BC is now on display at the National Museum in Dublin.
