Nestled between the coast of Galway Bay and the hills of the Burren, the small, scenic harbor village of Ballyvaughan serves as a hub for exploring the region. Though the 19th-century fishing village was developed over the last two centuries, its castle remnants and a Celtic ring fort indicate an earlier settlement here. During your visit, walk the village's quaint streets, visit the farmers market, and experience traditional music at a restaurant or pub after seeing the nearby archeological sites. Ballyvaughan and its natural surroundings also offer a variety of recreational activities, including rock climbing, cycling, kayaking, and angling. Ballyvaughan is in The Burren.
