The Cliffs of Moher & County Clare

within 75 milesThe spectacular coastal views of the Cliffs of Moher are among Ireland’s most famous, and they can be enjoyed from either the new visitor centre atop the Cliffs or from the sea below. Nearby, the village of Doolin has become a popular home of traditional Irish music; meanwhile, sites such as St Brigid’s Well, Doolin Cave, and the Poulnabrone Dolmen beckon visitors.

Clare is also home to several other attractions, which include:

The 15th century ruins of Quin Abbey include plenty of nooks and crannies to wander about. The Craggaunowen Project living history park explores Ireland during the bronze age and features architecture and tools of the time and includes Tim Severin’s hide boat the Brendan which he created to prove that St Brendan could have “discovered” America in the 6th century. The medieval town of Ennis with its winding streets offer the perfect place to get lost in an Irish market town.
