The County Galway/County Clare region

The West Clare region of Ireland is famous for its many geographical and historical sites such as the Brurren region with its unique flora and fauna. This is a region which was largely sculpted over the last two million years by God and his glaciers, through the exposure and submergence of its landscape to ice, ocean and the plate movements of the earth.

Also the majestic Cliffs of Moher which are one of Ireland's top Visitor attractions and are a designated UNESCO Geo Park. The Cliffs are 214m high at the highest point and range for 8 kilometres over the Atlantic Ocean on the western seaboard of County Clare. O'Brien's Tower stands proudly on a headland of the majestic Cliffs. From the Cliffs one can see the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, as well as The Twelve Pins, the Maum Turk Mountains in Connemara and Loop Head to the South.

The Shannon estuary is the longest sheltered, naturally deep estuary in the country - a playground for a number of bottleneck dolphins. These can be observed from various places along the coast as on Dolphin watching tours which depart from the Kilrush Marina and from Carrigaholt harbour.

West Clare is also famous for its tradiitional Irish music with many festivals suchas The Willie Keane festival and Eigse Mrs Crotty festival in Kilrush, Fleadh Nua Ennis. The International Doonbeg Jazz festival also takes place every May.


The Doonbeg area has a lot to offer in terms of tourism. From having an internationally acclaimed links golf course designed by Greg Norman to the fantastic scenery that can be enjoyed from the numerous walks in the area. And so, those wanting to try their hand at golfing, fishing, walking, swimming or do nothing more than enjoy the local hospitality can have it all here in the relaxed atmosphere of Doonbeg.
