Welcome to Southwestern & Western Clare


South of the plunging Cliffs of Moher to the beach resort of Kilkee, the land flattens, with vistas that sweep across pastures and dunes to the horizon. Some of Ireland's finest surf rolls in to shore near the low-key beach towns of Lahinch, Miltown Malbay and Doonbeg.

Kilkee is the main town of the Loop Head Peninsula. Beautiful and dramatic in equal measure, its soaring cliffs stretching to the lighthouse-crowned tip are major milestones on the breathtaking Wild Atlantic Way.

Inland, don't miss the charming heritage town of Ennistimon and its surging cascades.
