About the location

CARRON, COUNTY CLARE

Lisdoonvarna 13 miles; Ennis 17 miles.

The village of Carron is the only village in the Burren uplands. The name Carron is thought to derive from the Gaelic word Cairn which means 'a mound of stones'. These cairns or stones can be found on each of the mountains in the Burren. In the village there’s a pub, along with wonderful views over the Burren, and in the area there’s three recognised walking routes. Within reach is the spa town of Lisdoonvarna, which is home to the Spa Wells Health Centre, pubs offering traditional Irish music, shops and restaurants. The town of Ennis is also within driving distance with its narrow streets, market square, shops and restaurants. Other attractions of note are the superb Cliffs of Moher and the Burren National Park. Carron is an ideal base for exploring this part of County Clare. Both the nearest beach and Wild Atlantic way are 7 miles away. Further afield it is possible to reach Galway (28 miles) or Dublin (162 miles) and it is only 30 miles to Shannon Airport.
