County Clare located on the west coast of Ireland shares borders with the ever popular destination of Galway Bay to the north, the historic city of Limerick to the south, and holds back the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean to the west. The region is home to some of the top attractions in the country and is very accessible whether you’re staying in Clare or any of the surrounding counties due to the ever improving road network in Ireland.
There are several places of note in County Clare that you need to put on your to do list. The Cliffs of Moher are easily one of, if not, the best tourist attractions in the whole of Ireland. These majestic cliffs were once the edge of the known world and stand a staggering 200 metres plus above the powerful waves of the Atlantic. A short journey from the cliffs will bring you to the Burren, a unique karst landscape that encompasses a huge area which is home to three quarters of Ireland’s floral species.
There are large towns and charming rural villages dotted across the land which offer a full range of accommodation options as well as a welcoming social scene in and around the pubs of County Clare.
