Western Ireland overflows with quaint coastal towns, historical castles, and picturesque rocky landscapes. With big cities like Galway, Cork, and Limerick, the region has the right amount of urban flavor to balance Ireland's rugged west coast. Carpeted green fields end abruptly at the Cliffs of Moher, which draw visitors as a top tourist attraction in the region. The area's Aran Islands, a collection of three small islands, showcase the original language through many native Irish speakers. Make Western Ireland central to your Ireland travel plans using our Ireland trip maker website.
