Back to nature

The jaw dropping natural beauty was amazing however this is not for a windy, wet day. Totally unspoiled natural beauty.

This is the most stunning formation in the middle of nowhere! It looks as if it is almost human made, but it isn't.

The trek to get to the Worm Hole can be a bit cumbersome if the weather is not nice, or for someone who is less mobile. Even on some of the easier "paths" to get to it, you must deal with uneven rock surfaces, rock walls, pastures, etc. The easiest way that I've found is to walk along the cliffs... More

We were led to believe by our tour guide that getting here would be an easy walk, one that my 65+ year old parents could do. This was decidedly NOT the case. Scrabbling over uneven surfaces, no pathway at all, only some red paint marking the way, occasionally havibg to climb over stone walls (!!). Trying to get here took... More

Regarding what you might read it is not that bad to find (you can ask locals they are very kind). If you find the right dirt road you'll reach a cattle fence at the end. There already is the first red mark. From then on just follow the red markings. The last one is on a kind of cliff or... More

How to find the Worm Hole? Keep on walking!! It is much further than one thinks, but so worth it! The walk to get there is definitely a little tricky, wet, slick, uneven surfaces on the large rocks and it's easy to twist an ankle. I wore tennis shoes (ones with good track) and was alright because I didn't hurry.... More

We were lucky to get a guide who not only took us to the point where a touring vehicle can reach but also walked with us right across a rock strewn area to the Worm Hole. Be very careful walking across this area because its an ideal place to break a leg or twist an ankle. When you reach it,... More

Incredible feat of Nature. You must check it out if you go to the Aran Islands. It is where the red bull diving championship was held. You will be amazed.

Do visit this phenomenon of nature when you visit the fort ruins. You won't believe it is not man-made. It's interesting to note that the Red Bull Diving Championships were held here a couple of times. The view from the high cliffs is fantastic.

I can't believe that I actually visited this amazing place. I just happened to see the Red Bull cliff diving competition on TV that took place here last year while channel surfing. I thought then that it couldn't be real. But I'm of the privileged few than can honestly say after being there that it's one of the most incredible... More
