The landscape of North Clare is diverse and magical. The Cliffs of Moher, standing firm against the might of the Atlantic Ocean; the lively energy of the match-making spa resort of Lisdoonvarna and the golden lining of the beach inside the curve of Liscannor Bay at Lahinch, with its championship golf course.

As you travel through the Burren, 7,000 years of history unfolds before your eyes, with farmsteads from the Stone Age and the Iron Age, churches, abbeys and high crosses, plus castles and fortresses of local lords. The mysteries of the Burren unfold at the Burren Centre in historic Kilfenora, Burren eXposure in Ballyvaughan and Aillwee Caves.

You can savour the cultural riches of music, song and dance at Doolin, where traditional musicians gather to celebrate Clare's musical wealth. Many towns and villages including Kilfenora, Ballyvaughan and Lisdoonvarna enjoy spontaneous music/dance 'sessions', which can last long enough to test the most energetic visitor.

North Clare has an array of activities to choose from including caving, mountain climbing, gliding, painting, photography, bird-watching, golf, sea fishing plus coarse and game angling, horse riding, pony trekking, water sports and diving, as well as walking and cycling.
