Tucked in towards the corner of South-West Ireland, County Clare is a true gem of the Wild Atlantic Way thanks to the world-class quality of the attractions on offer.
From rolling countryside to a wild and jagged coastline, you’ll find people and places steeped in history.
So many local highlights – from Clare’s enchanting centres of traditional music excellence to Bunratty’s castle, from postcard villages to the breaktaking sights of The Burren and Cliffs of Moher – mean any time we’ve visited one of the first things we’ve decided to was come back again soon to take in more!
Bordered by County Galway to the north, County Tipperary to the easy and County Limerick to the south; you could well find County Clare to be the perfect launchpad for taking in the sights of the Wild Atlantic Way.
Being surrounded, to a large degree, by so much water only adds to County Clare’s ragged, sweeping beauty. With, of course, the stark and imposing west coast to one side, the River Shannon to the south-east, the Shannon Estuary to the south and Galway Bay; this is truly a wind-swept county in the heart of nature.
Island Life in Clare
There are plenty of chances to sample island life, thanks to five separate islands off the coast of County Clare, and the adventure of being among language and music history preserved as a living way of life in many areas to this day.
Our first stop? Those Clliffs of Moher where you’ll truly feel ‘on the edge of the world’ and a place apart from your daytime cares.
Unspoilt, wild and timeless, the Cliffs are the best of the Ireland of your imagination and more.
