Spend More Time in County Clare

The beauty and landscape of County Clare make it an area worth exploring further than ‘just' the Cliffs of Moher or Bunratty Castle.

The people are incredibly welcoming, very open to conversation, and always happy to answer questions – and ask their own of you.

Clare can offer every type of Ireland experience. Lively pubs with live music? Check. Bustling city? Check. Incredible food? Check. Private castle stay. Yep, even that. And the feeling of community is obvious, even to the visitor.
