This lively student town has no shortage of good pubs andrestaurants.

Day 2: Galway - Killarney
From Galway City it is only a short drive along the coast to the Burren - one of Ireland's great natural treasures. This is a land of limestone pavements, barren hillsides, rare flora, early Christian settlements, and ancient stone monuments. Spend most of the morning exploring this unique area. You will then pass through Kilfenora, the "town of the crosses" for a visit to the old cathedral. Have lunch in one of the pretty local villages. After lunch, and nbsp;visit the stunning Cliffs of Moher, which drop almost 700 feet into the crashing Atlantic waves. Here, you can walk the cliff top trails, watch the numerous seabirds, or visit the award winning environmental exhibition.From here, travel south through County Clare passing the famous golf course and beach at Lahinch to catch the ferry across the Shannon estuary and into County Kerry to the beautiful lakeside town of Killarney - your base for the next 3 nights.

Day 3: Killarney - Dingle Peninsula
Today, explore the wonderful Dingle Peninsula - one of the most scenic parts of Ireland and a heartland of Gaelic culture and tradition. The first stop of the day is the beach at Inch - a vast expanse of sand facing out into the Atlantic and very popular with surfers.From here increasingly narrow roads lead onto the peninsula itself through the town of Dingle and out to Slea Head. This is an area of ancient forts and dwellings going back thousands of years and you will visit some of the best examples along the way. The views here are impressive with the nearby Blasket Islands rising dramatically from the sea and the mountains of the Ring of Kerry to the south. Weather permitting, you will be able to walk on the beaches or along the cliff tops to fully appreciate the fabulous scenery. This area is very important in Gaelic literature and you will learn more during the day. The circuit of Slea Head leads back to Dingle town with its brightly colored buildings and busy harbor. You will spend the rest of the afternoon here before returning to Killarney. If the weather is good you could take an evening walk in the Killarney National Park - just on the edge of town. and nbsp;(B)
