Clare Attractions

The Cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher are a stunning natural feature and well worth a visit. Standing at 214m at the highest point, they range for 8 kilometres over the Atlantic Ocean on the western seaboard of Co. Clare. O'Brien's Tower stands proudly on a headland of majestic Cliffs. With a breathtaking panoramic vista, the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, the Twelve Pins, the Maum Turk Mountans in Connemara and Loop Head to the South can all be seen. 


The Burren

 The Burren, from the Gaelic word Boireann is an area of limestone rock covvering imposing majestic mountains, and tranquil valleys with gently meandering streams making it one of Clare's top attractions. With an almost spiritual peace, extraordinary array of flora and wildlife, and megalithic tombs and monuments older than Eqypt's pyramids, the Burren creates a tappesrty of colour and a seductively magical aura which few people leave without wanting to experience again. 



At Craggaunowen - The Living Past, we come to the arrival of the Celts in Ireland. The story is told of how the lived, hunted and died. See a replica of a Crannóg (Lake Dwelling), a Ring Fort and "An Iron Age Roadway." Craggaunowan Castle wihich was built around 1550 is also situated on the grounds. 

A major feature is the "Brendan Boat" built by Tim Severin who sailed from Ireland to Greenland, re-enacting the voyage of St. Brendan, reputed to have discovered America centuries before Columbus.
