Check out your Clare holiday cottage then take a journey on the wild side. First the epic Cliffs of Moher, which plummet down into the choppy ocean - an extraordinary nesting site and fantastic spot for birdwatching. Next The Burren where a desolate, lunar-like landscape stretches before you, rich in history and wildlife. Ireland's longest river, the Shannon, also passes through and there are some amazing beaches like Spanish Point and Lahinch attracting surf dudes from near and far.
In fact, with a Clare holiday home in Ireland as your base, there are stacks of outdoor pursuits to choose from. Hike the Burren Way. Hire a bike and cycle around Lough Derg. Walk the Wild Atlantic Way on a trip along the coast of Loop Head. Play golf on world-class fairways. Go sea angling or fishing for wild salmon in limestone lakes. Or join a boat trip to the nearby Aran Islands (of wool jumper fame) spotting dolphins along the way.
Family days out include the showcaves of Aillwee, Bunratty Castle & Folk Park (medieval banquets, Easter parades etc) and 'The Living Past Experience' at Craggaunowen.
Enjoy the 'craic' in a Clare holiday cottage!
Come evening, simply head for the nearest pub, fill your glass and tap your feet to the rhythmic beat of traditional Irish music. A holiday cottage in Clare really is the 'craic'!
