The Dun Aongahsa Loop Walk is an easy 4.4km walk on Inishmore, the largest of the Aran Islands located off the coast of Co. Galway, Ireland. These stunning islands are home to some great people, attractions and activities to keep you busy for weeks!

The walk passes the ancient Hillfort Dun Aonghasa, which overlooks a 300ft cliff face straight down to the Atlantic Ocean.

It then comes near The Serpents Lair, a rectangular 'box' which is not man-made and is filled with sea water coming in under the rocks.
