Cheap flights to Shannon offer access to 'world's best cliffs'

Brits travelling on cheap flights to Shannon are afforded access to a variety of attractions including "the best cliffs on this side of the world".

This is according to Tourism Ireland, which recommended a trip to Burren for anyone visiting noth-west Ireland, a region that boasts one of Europe’s largest karst landscapes.

John Lahiffe, Tourism Ireland’s publicity manager, said one of the highlights is a walk along the Cliffs of Moher, which he said is home to some of the planet’s most spectacular cliff formations.

"Burren is a great bit limestone plateau in County Clare and there are various walks about it," he commented.

"You have arctic and tropical plants growing side by side. To walk out there, particularly at spring time, is stunning."

Shannon is easily accessible from the UK, with Aer Arann operating services to the airport from Birmingham, Bristol and Glasgow.

At the end of October, the airline will increase its flights to Shannon from Manchester by 60 percent in response to strong demand.
