County Clare is a fantastic tourist destination in Ireland, with an array of attractions to visit and things to do throughout the year

The beautiful County Clare in the West of Ireland is known for its stunning natural beauty, with many of the attractions in the area revolving around its rugged coastline.

The Cliffs of Moher, dubbed one of Ireland’s most popular natural tourist destinations, are an example of Ireland’s jugged, unspoilt allure. The Burren National Park is a region of fascinating bedrock landscape, approximately 1500 hectares in size and steeped in rich history, formed millions of years ago, before humankind.
