County Clare

Lookouts · Castles · Caves
Banner County
Situated just below County Galway on Ireland's west coast, County Clare serves as an amalgamation of stunning and unusual landscapes. Known for some of the most-visited sites in Ireland, County Clare draws visitors with its dramatic Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. Formed by the pounding waves of the Atlantic below, the sheer cliffs bring together green earth, sheer drop-offs and blue sea. Meaning "a rocky place," the Burren landscape provides a stark contrast to the traditional green hills of Ireland, appearing as a moonscape of rocky crags and slabs. Beyond the natural splendor, the warmth of the residents in the county's small villages is a gem in its own right. Traditional Irish music and culture permeates this land and its people. Make the most of your holiday in County Clare by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Ireland holiday planner.
