West Clare – Go west for adventure

County Clare has it all…. 2 Natural Heritage Areas, a National Park, half of Lough Derg and 8 KM of very tall Cliffs! Country Clare, Ireland has always featured with keen surfers, golfers, nature and food lovers alike. Home of Lahinch Beach, The Burren Smokehouse, The Burren Perfumery, Lisdoonvarna, 5 Links & 7 Parkland Golf courses and not a Cave mentioned yet! Doolin Cave and the Aillwee Caves are a must visit. Numerous villages where colourful pubs and cafes should be stumbled upon and experienced at your own pace.

Best Loved recommends Ballinalacken Castle Hotel in Doolin, when you walk through the entrance doors just turn around and look back through the doors – there are the superb Cliffs of Moher that tower 214m over the Atlantic Ocean. We advise speaking with the O’ Callaghan’s, owners of this super property, to organise an ocean boat trip to look up at the Cliffs or the opening hours of the Visitors Centre where you can take in the views from up top! The food here will not have travelled far; the best fish, meat, vegetables – all locally produced!

A unique and special place to enjoy West Clare is the stunning Moy House which overlooks Lahinch Beach – where surfers, kite-surfers and windsurfers from all over the world travel to experience the wind and waves. Moy House which overlooks all this activity is a perfect location for an intimate get together or event. Their 9 guestrooms are special and a bespoke event can be easily arranged by their team.  Wonderful food, great wines and a idyllic spot like Lahinch will guarantee great memories!

Rolling green pastures and horses grazing surround you when staying at Carrygerry Country House located only 20 minutes from Shannon Airport. This 18th century privately owned grand house,  has won awards for its great food and the Irish hospitality is warm and welcoming.  Visiting Country Clare, Ireland will create fantastic fun, new adventures and the urge to plan the next trip!
