This is a quiet unspoiled rural area (off the Tourist Trail!) overlooking the village of Cooraclare and rural countryside with quiet riding pony and goats in field in front of house.
The area is ideal for walking roads, tracks, bogs, cliffs along
coast and deserted beaches as well as for cycling along the many back roads with only little other traffic. It is also ideal for discovering castles, ruins, archaeological sites, old churches, holy wells and ancient graveyards. A ringfort is just a few meters away and well visible from the property.
This part of West Clare is noted for its traditional music and dance - impromptu seisiuns are held regularly throughout the year. The local pubs offer good Guinness and chat. A number of good restaurants in the area offer excellent Irish kitchen and serve good seafood.
The coast between Lahinch is surfers paradise with a number of excellent surfing spots. Doughmore Strand, Spanish Point and Lahinch are famous among surfers for
their waves, rolling in from the atlantic. You'll find more about surfing in Co.Clare on these web sites:
