Welcome to Clare

Welcome to Clare, a county with rolling countryside, stark landscapes and rugged Atlantic coastline. The Burren and the Cliffs of Moher are perhaps two of the most well-known regions in the county, if not the entire country. The Burren’s karst landscape of bedrock gives the area an other-worldly feeling, and features a unique collection of cliffs and caves, fossils, rock formations and archaeological sites.

On the Atlantic coast, the precipitous Cliffs of Moher are home to thousands of seabirds, including puffins. Formed from the relentless pounding of the Atlantic Ocean, the Cliffs of Moher are today the most visited natural tourist attraction in Ireland, and are a sight to behold.  Nearby Doolin village is a renowned centre for traditional Irish music. All along Clare’s west coast are fanstatic beaches, which are a magnet for surfers looking for the next big wave.
