The County Galway/County Clare region

County Clare has so much on offer; boat trips, quirky pubs, seaside resorts and a great tradition for Irish music, all set amidst spectacular scenery such as the towering Cliffs of Moher and the fascinating landscape of The Burren.


Scarrif is a large village in County Clare, set near the shores of Scarrif Bay, part of Lough Derg. The village is renowned for its angling, while the East Clare Golf Course is close by. More great golf can be found at Lahinch, within driving distance, which also offers a lovely long sandy beach. A slightly longer drive but still within easy reach are the impressive Cliffs of Moher, offering coastal walks with amazing ocean views and varied wildlife.
