Other attractions include the haunting Ailwee caves, local Irish food and markets, boat trips to the spectacular Aran Islands and traditional Irish music in The Roadside Tavern just across the street! Spectacular scenery and some of the best walking routes surround The Burren Hostel Clare (Sleepzone) and detailed maps are provided at the hostel reception.  If groups prefer excellent walking tour guides are available to book on request: Tony Kirby, Shane Connolly, Mary Howard, John Connolly.
