Kilrush and West Clare are Calling You!

The B&B is overlooking historic Scattery Island on the Shannon Estuary and the Kerry hills beyond it.
Scattery Island
Kilrush (translated: Church of the promontory or wood) is a busy market and heritage town with access to the Shannon River. One of the most interesting attractions is Scattery Island, which can also be reached by a boat from the marina. It has been an ecclesiastical centre since early times. A monastery, reputedly founded there by St Senan in the sixth century, suffered under the Vikings in the ninth and tenth centuries and was largely destroyed in Tudor times. Scattery Island has also served as a harbour for the Spanish Armada and as a defense outpost for the English government. Various ruins on the Island tell about its interesting history, the visitor centre is open in season. There are daily boat trips from Kilrush Marina to the Island.
Vandeleur Walled Garden
Kilrush Woods occupies 170 hectares east of the town and was formerly the Vandeleur Demesne. The wood contains beautiful, mature trees planted in the 18th century. The revived Vandeleur Walled Garden specialises in sub-tropical and southern hemisphere plants. The Visitor Center has the "Kilrush in Landlord Times" exhibition.

Kilrush
Kilrush also hosts a number of traditional Irish Pubs with traditional music sessions all year round. The town is the ideal place to explore the West Clare region which is well known for the hospitality of its people. You'll find all the activities and information about West Clare here.
