    Take the goat path

    by sweetmusic Updated Apr 4, 2011

    You can visit the highest point of the Cliffs of Moher by walking up the road a few miles to it, however I recommend walking along the side of them. If you talk to the locals, they will tell you where you can find the goat's path along the edge of the cliffs - a relatively dangerous but intensely beautiful and breathtaking journey. When I went, I met no other travellers, allowing myself time for reflection and awe. Electric fences and mud puddles aside, I have had few more rewarding experiences during my travels thus far.

    Father Ted Land

    feck off

    If you are a fan of the surreal comedy series “Father Ted” then you will already have some kind of introduction to the area around here. Although made by a British company, and for a while banned in Ireland, the series became hugely popular.

    The use of the word ‘Feck’ was perhaps the shows most enduring legacy and the creation of the nightmare-priest character Father Jack. He Spent his retirement in an armchair in the Craggy Island Parochial house saying very little apart from “Feck” “Girls” “Nuns” “Drink” “Gobshite” and in one memorable episode “That would be an ecumenical matter”.

    If you can get hold of a video, do. If not, at least have a look at the website www.feck.com.

    For afficionados of the series, use the website to find out where you can visit the filming locations. Craggy Island itself (with the ariel shots at beginning of the show) is the smallest of the Aran islands., Inis oirr. Other locations include the Parochial house in Clare, along with the Ailwee caves (see other tip)and the cliffs of Mohar.

    Doolin IS "Off the Beaten Track"

    There are no trains to Doolin, so if you end up there, you probably meant to. The best "off the beaten track" thing I can come up with is to visit Inishere. It's a good thirty minute ferry ride from Doolin's pier, but well worth it.
