We had an excellent week at East Clare in late July. A car is essential for exploring far and wide, with traffic very light by UK standards - just as well as the minor roads are rather narrow. The Golf Village has over 50 units, most in blocks of 4. The golf course is adjacent but not obvious from the units. We had a 2 bed, 2up 2 down apartment - very spacious with all amenities provide for self-catering. We ate out most days and having taken advantage of the free shuttle bus to Peppers at Feakle on our first night, it turned into our main eatery! The live music on Sunday and Wednesday evenings is well worth experiencing, but it is a friendly place with good food. The reception staff at East Clare are very helpful with tips on places to visit etc. and there are several organised excusions available for those not inclined to drive. We explored in all directions - Limerick, Loch Derg circuit, Portumna Castle, Galway, Portrush etc. - plenty to experience. As a base for exploring western Ireland, this worked extremely well for us. The most convenient airport from the UK would be Shannon, but two of us flew to Dublin and hired a car from there - an easy drive on quiet motorways, but beware the odd toll!
