Two miles north west of the village is O'Brien's Monument, a tall pillar built in 1853, while the famous St Brigid's Well, reputed to have curative powers, is also close by. One of the great natural wonders of Ireland, the Cliffs of Moher, are just 5 minutes' drive away to the north; these majestic cliffs boast some of the most amazing views in Ireland, and on a clear day you can see the Aran Islands in Galway Bay and the hills of Connemara.
