These also include the Moycullen Bogs Nature Reserve, ideal for adventures both on foot and by bicycle, and the shores of Lough Corrib, which offer fishing and boating excursions, as well as the chance to spot native species from otters to hawks. Meanwhile, ferries make regular trips to the Aran Islands, where traditions remain strong, and the landscapes are mesmerizing.
