    9 Good Reasons to stay in Co.Clare...

    1A Golfer's Paradise
    The West of Ireland boasts some of the best golf links courses in the world! Lahinch and Doonbeg courses offer a challenging day's golf and overlook stretches of sandy beaches. Near Berry Lodge is Spanish Point 9-hole links course! We help organize your golf day if requested.
    2 Caving in the Burren
    The limestone region of the Burren is a world renowned heritage site famous for its stunning scenery. The stone walls are a study alone as they stretch ruggedly across the bare rock. Visit in May and June to see the unique flora in bloom!
    The ancient dolmen of Poulnabrone, Glenisheen wedge tomb as well as other ancient monuments are dotted throughout this special landscape and shouldn't be missed.
    3The Cliffs of Moher
    stand majestically over the Atlantic Ocean, looking out to the Aran Islands, to Lahinch to the South and to Galway Bay to the North.
    Further south is Loop Head Peninsula - the Cliffs stretching between Kilkee towards Loop Head are equally impressive and secret hideaways well worth a visit. Bird, Dolphin and Whale watching are popular among visitors to the region
    4Dolphin Watch
    The Shannon Estuary is home to Euope's largest population of bottle-nosed dolphins. Watch Boats depart from Carrigaholt and Kilrush throughout the summer months.
    Willie Clancy Week Miltown Malbay 5Traditional Music
    Irish Music is the living, breathing natural treasure of the County. Visit the Willie Clancy Summer School Miltown Malbay in early July! The local pubs have lively traditional entertainment until the early hours throughout the summer months. [more...]
    6The 'Riches of Clare'
    This exhibition at the Clare Museum in Ennis shows artifacts of Clare from the National Museum of Ireland, and also those collected locally. It gives an interesting insight into the life of the county through the ages.
    Bunratty Castle and Folk Park shows life as it was in bygone eras and plays host to entertaining musical medieval banquets, as does Knappogue Castle near the village of Quin - a 10 Minutes drive from Ennis.
    7Surfing the Waves
    The wild, rolling waves of the Atlantic crashing against the Western coastline provide a challenge for even the most dedicated surfers. Lahinch, Donbeg and Spanish Point are the most popular surfing destinations, with Surf schools in Lahinch developing young people's skills to face the waves throughout the year.
    8Festivals and Events
    The Irish enjoy nothing more than our festivals, horse races and GAA events in Gaelic Football and Hurling. Look out for these in the different areas when visiting! [more...] Click here for the official Events Brochure 2012 (pdf, 1 mb)
    9 Walking, Hiking and Cycling
    The best way to experience the Burren is by walking and hiking along the many 'green roads' criss-crossing the landscape! The 'Burren Way' and the 'Mid Clare Way' are set up especially for long distance walkers and each area of Clare can be covered on several sign posted cycleways.

    County Clare

    Clare is ancient and young. Its past goes deep into the mists of time, Stone Age tombs and Iron Age forts, abbeys and castles, connecting 7,000 years of history's milestones in The Burren Region.
    It is young in our thinking and attitudes to new technology, education, acceptance of cultures, new town Shannon, music & art and Gaelic games particularly hurling (we won The All Ireland Hurling Final twice in the 1990's.)
    Clare is a county of regal splendour from Brian Boru, High King of Ireland to the O'Briens of Thomond and the McNamara's of Lemenagh.

    Clare is the heartland of folklore, dance and music none more so than the Miltown Malbay area where we host the Willie Clancy Summer School of Music and set dance in July every year since 1972.

    Nature's handiwork can be seen in the spectacular seascape sculpture of The Bridges of Ross near Kilkee and the mighty 700 feet high Cliffs of Moher, along with the rare flora and fauna that is to be seen when you walk through that vast natural limestone park called The Burren.

    Clare has an exciting environment for sea and inland angling, championship quality golf, (Lahinch & Doonbeg International Golf Links Courses are a mere 10 minutes drive from Berry Lodge), water sports (Spanish Point Beach is in walking distance!), horse riding, walking, cycling and the ups and downs of climbing and potholing..

    Clare is different. Why not find out for yourself!
