Ballyvaughan is a small coastal village located near the south shores of Galway Bay. Despite having a population of only 224 people according to the 2006 census, Ballyvaughan is still a popular place for tourists to visit because of its close proximity to Aillwee Cave as well as The Burren. Aillwee Cave was first discovered in 1944, and it is now currently a show cover spanning over a kilometre long. The Burren is an impressive and beautiful karst landscape located outside of Ballyvaughan on Church Street in Corofin. The Burren National Park is the smallest of all the national parks in Ireland, but the views are definitely some of the most incredible that Ireland has to offer.
