Kilrush West Clare Ireland

Vandeleur Walled Garden

Kilrush is busy market and heritage town which lies on the Shannon estuary in West Clare. It is an ideal base from which to travel West to the Cliffs of Kilkee and Loop Head Peninsula, North to Dooolin, the majestic Cliffs of Moher and the rugged Burren landscape, East to the medieval town of Ennis and Bunratty Castle & Folk Park or South across the Shannon via the Shannon Car Ferry to Kerry. Kilrush is situated on Ireland's main tourist route midway between Killarney, the Cliffs of Moher and Galway city.

The main activities you can look forward to include dolphin watching, cycling tours of the Loop Head Peninsula, sea angling, coarse and game fishing, canoeing, diving, exploring - or just touring. There are several sandy beaches and also pleasant woodland and coastal walks in the area. Kilrush Creek Marina welcomes yachts from all over the world.

One of the most interesting attractions in Kilrush is Scattery Island, which can 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.
Kilrush Woods - entrance opposite the house
Kilrush Woods, which is located opposite the house, occupies 170 hectares 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 in Kilrush has the "Kilrush in Landlord Times" exhibition.

Kilrush was once one of the two terminals of the West Clare Railway coming from Ennis, the neighbouring town of Kilkee being the other. The railway closed in 1961 but a short section of the railway has been re-opened at Moyasta as a tourist attraction. One of the original steam engines on the route, the Slieve Callan has been restored.

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 the West of County Clare here.
