4kms from Liscannor is the magnificent Cliffs of Moher and O'Briens Tower. The cliffs rise in places to over 210m and stretch for about 8km. The Burren, bordered by the Atlantic and the quieter water of Galway Bay is a rock garden which extends for about 100sq miles and most of it is bare, pale grey limestone. There are many beautiful and rare flowers in the crevices and pastures.
