Clare is a combination of wild Atlantic coastline, the mystical Burren, rolling fields and farmlands, with traditional music and culture at its heart. The Atlantic pounds the coast all year round, eroding the rocks into spectacular landscapes at Loop head and the Cliffs of Moher. Surfers flock to ride the waves at the many beaches, the most famous being at Lahinch beach.
The Burren is a unique limestone plateau with ancient stone forts, dolmens and underground caves where alpine flora and fauna thrive. The river Shannon flows through part of the rolling countryside of East Clare where lovely villages such as Killaloe and Mountshannon lie on the shores of Lough Derg, Ireland’s pleasure lakes.
Traditional music and culture flourishes in Co. Clare, and in villages such as Miltown Malbay, Ennistymon, Doolin and Kilfenora you'll find pubs with year-round sessions of Irish music.
