Visit the Aran Islands and go back in time. This island just started using electricity in the late 70s and had a total of 800 residents. Take a ferry or plane here for a relaxing weekend.

These feel like the ends of the earth. Journey out from Galway to the Aran Islands, where time seems to have been standing still for the last thousand-or-so years. It's really astounding.
You can bike around the main island; it's mostly full of live stock, small houses, and beautiful views. When you get to the far end of the main island, don't skip the hike up to the druidic ruins. Looking out across the endless ocean and down on churning, turquoise water, it's easy to understand their mysticism.
