County Clare Travel Tips & Suggestions

I lived in Ennis for 6 months and I have to say that I really miss that colourfull village. Even it is a small place, there's always something to do. The pubs are an amazing centre of music. Libraries, shops, cinemas... Have I said enough??
Doolin is a gorgeous place to visit. And a good place to rent bikes and explore.
I lived in Kilkee for three months and I have to say that it's a beautiful place. The town is just charming.
Lisdoonvarna is a perfect spot to spend a few days. We stayed three and that was perfect. We visited the Cliffs of Moher and drove to the beach at Lahinch twice. Lisdoonvarna was close to the sites but you don't have to deal with the hassle of Lahinch. This was our third trip to Ireland and our first to Lisdoonvarna …
I stayed in the little town of Liscannor and then walked to the Cliffs of Moher. I was traveling all by myself, a girl of twenty on her first trip out of the U.S. It was the best experience of my life. Liscannor is amazing.

Untouched by the tour buses that run rampant along the coast to the Cliffs of Moher, Doolin is a wonderful little village that is a backpackers dream. While it does see a lot of traffic from tourists and holiday-goers, it still holds fast to a traditional Irish spirit. It is on the doorstep to the Cliffs of Moher, the …
For many years both local and foreign people have visited Lisdoonvarna (Irish: Líos Dún Bhearna, meaning "ring fort by the gap") in County Clare for its Matchmaking Festival. No, it is not where they produce matches to light fires; it is where specially trained people -- the matchmakers -- would turn miserable single …
Kilrush looks like an ordinary local Irish town, but there is more to it than meets the eye. It's a quite charming place that the locals call home and in which visitors feel at home. Everything in town is within walking distance. There is a bus station in town, and the closest train station is in Ennis (buses run from …
If you like the ocean at all, Kilkee, on the coast of Ireland in County Clare, is the perfect place to go. There is so much to do and explore if you use the town as a base. It gets busy during the summer months, especially at the beaches, which are quite popular with tourists and locals alike. It is a vacation hotspot …
