I recently had the good fortune to stay at Seacrest B&B in the charming West Clare town of Quilty. The owner, Angela, was the perfect hostess with clean, comfortable rooms (with view of the Atlantic) and a great variety for breakfast. I used that as my base to visit The Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, Milltown Mably, Spanish Point to the north and Doonbeg (very nice pub, "Tubridy's") and all the way to Loop Head and the lighthouse to the south. This place is the best !!!
