A tour of the Aillwee Caves is the best way to sample the massive system of caves that underlies the Burren and a highly recommended stop on one of the most scenic drives Ireland has to offer, from Galway city taking in the rugged landscape of the Burren and the dramatic Cliffs of Moher. The Park House Hotel in Galway is the perfect hotel for your visit to the Aillwee Caves where you can easily take a day trip along the coast of the Wild Atlantic Way to the Aillwee Caves, the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren National Park.
During the Ice Age, underground rivers carved countless caves in the area. Brown bears, which became extinct in Ireland over a thousand years ago, found them great for hibernating. The guided walks are one of the top things to do when visiting the Aillwee Caves and last about 40 minutes.
On the same property you will find the Burren Birds of Prey Centre, home to owls, eagles, hawks and falcons. This is one of the most popular things to do for animal lovers in the area. The centre offers Dynamic Flying Displays where visitors can interact and get up close and personal to the birds and Hawk Walks which are a once in a life time opportunity to interact with some of nature's top predators.
