Nestled in the southern region of the Burren, Kilfenora is a small village that is both warm and lively, as well as conveniently located for anyone looking to experience the magic of Ireland's western coast.

Just south of Lisdoonvarna, Kilfenora is a tiny, little town that is home to a post office, a few church buildings (the smallest cathedral in the country, although it is now in ruins), and a few places to get good food and listen to lively music. Your options for hostels in Kilfenora are few, but that's to be expected in a place so small.

Linnanes Pub is the best place for live music. It is on Main Street, right across the street from the Burren Centre, and offers live music sessions on Wednesday night. Plus, if for some reason you end up in a tight spot, and your chosen Kilfenora hostel is booked full, Linnanes also offers self-catering accommodations. Vaughns Pub also offers good eats -- it's also on Main Street (to be honest, everything is on Main Street) and a little closer to your Kilfenora hostel, but it's also a little more pricey.

For things to do, check out the Burren Centre and the High Crosses (which are over hundreds of years old and often pictured in typical "Irish scenery" postcards. Your hostel in Kilfenora is quite nice and the town atmosphere is great; however it is hard to get here by bus and there aren't any grocery shops nearby. It's best to go into Ennistymon or Ennis if you're passing through for food unless you're planning on shelling out for pub meals. Kilfenora is easy to reach by car, since it is off a major highway. It is also a good stopping place for the night (or at least the late afternoon!) if you're cycling through.

Other nearby hotspots include the Cliffs of Moher, Leamanegh Castle, and the Gleninsheen Wedge Tomb. Head to the coast on a warm, sunny day if you like surfing or beautiful beaches!
