Go to the Aran Islands
These islands have been inhabited for thousands of years and retain an ancient feel even though they are accessible both by sea and by air. There are less than 2000 people on all three islands and many of them are there for the simplicity and remoteness of the lifestyle. All over Ireland, and particularly here, you find ancient graveyards where the feeling of antiquity and solemnity pervades. I did not check the dates on the graves but this one has been there a long time and symbolizes its link with a revered past.
