5 Natural Wonders to visit if you Study English in Limerick

#1. Cliffs of Moher - 1.5 hours from Limerick

As Ireland's top tourist destination the Cliffs of Moher rarely need an introduction. It's a truly awe inspiring place to behold. Breathe in the fresh air 215m above the Atlantic Ocean as it rolls into the distance as far as the eye can see. When the sun sets on the horizon, it's as close as we can get to paradise.

#3 Doolin Cave - 1.5 hours from Limerick

One of Irelands best kept secrets, Doolin Cave is so magnificent yet so underrated, its almost a tragedy. The only explanation is that the pictures don't do it justice. Located in the small traditional village of Doolin, the cave is home to an enormous Stalactite that hangs vertically from a limestone ceiling and looks to defy gravity with it's apparent weightlessness. This naturally formed gigantic hanging rock is thousands of years old and is breathtaking to behold. Leave it out of your travel plans at your own loss. As Europe's biggest Stalactite and the worlds 3rd biggest, it should be on everyone's list of travel plans if they visit this region.

#4. The Aran Islands - 1.5 hours from Limerick with a 30 min boat ride

Home to the Red Bull cliff diving Championships, The Aran Islands are located off the coast of Co. Clare and Galway and consist of 3 beautiful Islands with unique topography and scenery to die for. Accessible by boat from Galway or from Doolin in Co.Clare, we highly recommended a visit if you wish to experience some great sea food, beautiful scenery, secluded beaches and friendly Irish locals. As one the Gaeltacht Regions of Ireland you will hear the melodic Irish language being spoken by the locals as you take in the fresh sea air and natural surroundings. Rent a bike and explore or simply put the feet up and admire the landscape with a good book.

#5. The Wild Atlantic -

Drive from the bottom of Cork along Irelands Atlantic Coastline all the way to Donegal travelling through the counties of Kerry, Limerick, Clare, Galway and Mayo and be witness to some of natures most inspiring landscapes. Stop along the way at the numerous sandy beaches dotted along the coastline including Inch beach in Kerry, Doonbeg, Lahinch, Fanore, Salthill, Gurteen beach, Keel, Bundoran and many more.
