Activities:

Between the views, the archaeological sites, and the heritage centers, there is no shortage of things to do and see in this part of the country.

EXPLORE CITIES & VILLAGES
Ireland is short on full-scale cities, but Galway and Limerick are close by, with about a thousand small villages and towns to explore in the radius between them. Doolin and Lisdoonvarna on the coast are excellent destinations for music and good craic.

SCENIC DRIVES & WALKS
There are several fantastic self-drive and walking tours in the area. Walk, bike or hike through the bordering Burren National Park. Explore coastal walks along the Atlantic. Descend into the Doolin underground caves.

NATURE & THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Cliffs of Moher– some of the most recognizable cliffs in the world. Stunning.
The Burren – lunar, rocky, archaic, haunting. Flora unique to Ireland, underground streams and caves that are open for public exploration.  It is an area that can’t really be described well, one must walk along the low, quiet, stone and lichen covered landscape to understand what it’s all about (and even then, won’t be able to take  in enough of the flavor to hold inside after stepping away). Trust us. Take a short drive out into this natural wonder. Send us a postcard, tell us if we’re wrong about this. (We can take it.)

EQUESTRIAN ACTIVITIES
Nearby are several riding centers with horses and lessons for hire. Within driving distance is the Connemara region of County Galway, famous for gorgeous scenery, yes, but more so the Connemara ponies that hail from these parts.

HERITAGE & HISTORY
This part of Clare is rich with archaeological sites, including castles, stone circles and standing stones. There are castle keeps and ruins in the vicinity to explore, as well as medieval abbeys, megalithic tombs and cultural preservation sites. On the fancier end of history are the various castle hotels like Gregan Castle, Adare Manor and Dromoland castle. There is a large heritage castle property about 40 minutes away, offering nightly medieval banquets and great fun. A little further is Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, an O’Disneyland for kids and grown ups alike, with reenactments and life size dioramas depicting historical scenes of life at the castle long, long ago, plus a pretty terrific gift shop featuring local silversmith jewelry and artisan wares.

A close family member of the owner is a historian, available for tours and archaeological site visits or educational excursions. If you haven’t booked a historical visit like this in Ireland, you are missing out. Honestly, we can’t recommend the experience highly enough. Whether this fellow or one of the others that we will happily recommend, we can’t overstate the value of such an experience. Life changing and magical and brilliant are all words that come to mind.

SHOPPING
Adare and Ennis are both lovely villages for shoppers, Limerick and Galway have many shops, and most villages like Doolin and Liscannor have specialty shops of some variety to entice bargain hunters and serious collectors alike. Nearby are the Burren Perfumery, the Burren Smokehouse and all many artisan jam and sweet shops.

GOLF
Lahinch Golf Club – World class 18-hole championship course by the sea, with famous holes “Klondyke” and “The Dell” among them.
