Sea cliffs and stout castles; rocky barrens and proud cathedrals: County Clare is one of Ireland’s most dramatic regions.
Travel through rugged country to connect with the region’s past at Bunratty Castle, a 15th-century fortification, all strong angles and parapets. Move forward in time, visiting quaint parishes or sitting in on a hurling match.
Get a feel for the unique landscape that sculpted the county’s culture at the Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark. Desolate limestone stretches across the land, with colorful wildflowers bursting from sharp crevices and, nearby, the stunning Cliffs of Moher plummet 200m down to the Atlantic Ocean.
