We visited in a day of low cloud and pouring rain. Unfortunately this meant that we were lucky to catch a glimpse of the sea far below. But i can imagine it is wonderful on a clear day

I cannot say enough good things about this experience. Pat and his helper, Elizabeth, were so entertaining, helpful and full of knowledge. While this is not a hard walk overall, there are times where you are walking pretty much straight up so be prepared. We...More

Day Along the Coast in County Clare (12 Replies)
Our original plan was to drive up along the coast from Killarney, stop at the Cliffs of Moher, then try to drive through parts of The Burren. The more I read reviews, I am wondering if it might be a better alternative to explore the cliffs in Kilkee, then proceed up the coast, bypassing the Cliffs and instead head to Doolin.

However, if that walk is not for you, the pitch and putt course in Doolin looks an interesting challenge (when viewed from the road)...More
