The area and getting around

A county full of picturesque villages

Don't know which county town you would like to visit? The 40 villages in this wonderful county are equally lovely and interesting, also, they are characterized by their picturesque and old-fashion character. With stone streets, bridges, lakes, gardens and colonial style buildings, you will definitely feel like you are inside a fairy tale. If you decide to explore them, you will find many places for tourism and entertainment, such as castles, playgrounds, shops with local products, historical monuments and some of them are even close to bays. So you can see how there is plenty to do in this county both on the outskirts and within the towns themselves.

A county surrounded by natural wonders

There is no doubt that the star of County Clare is the varied natural landscapes there are to explore, including imposing cliffs, mountains, lakes and coastlines. Most of them are far away from the towns and cities, but they are definitely worth seeing. And there's no need to worry, as these places are so touristy that there are plenty of land and sea tours to take you to your destination and show you around.

Travellers and activities

County Clare for nature lovers

Because there are so many natural destinations to choose from in County Clare, you will definitively be spoilt for choice, but here are some of the most popular ones. One of them are undoubtedly the Cliffs of Moher, located near the village of Doolin, which are cliffs that tower over the Clare coastline and are visited by tourists every year. With a height of 214 metres of fluted stone, the views from the top will take your breath away, and if you feel like exploring them in depth the Doolin Cliff Walk trail will take you around the entire surface of the cliffs. Another must-visit destination is the famous Burren, an area in County Clare with some of the most incredible scenery in the country. Here you will find an area very similar to the surface of the moon, due to the limestone that covers its surface forming caves and rock formations.

County Clare for culture lovers

Now, just as there are incredible natural sites, there are also places full of culture. The perfect example of this is Craggaunowen Castle, a 16th century castle located in the Quin town, that is now an open-air archaeological museum. The castle displays artefacts, animals and farmhouses of the Celtic ancestors who inhabited Ireland 1000 years ago. And you can also take one of the guided tours that the museum offers throughout the year, where in addition to viewing the exhibits and monuments you can also see re-enactments by the site’s workers of how people lived in the past.

County Clare is known as ''Banner County'' because it is believed that the custom of using banners in political contests began here.
