is one of the hidden treasures of Ireland where visitors still find the peace and tranquility for which the emerald isle is famous. Rolling hills, green fields, unspoilt lakes and streams, endless forests and bogs offer a serene but never boring scenery - and it is central and not far away from all the major sights in the midwest of Ireland, including Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, Bunratty Folkpark, Killaloe as well as Galway, Ennis and Limerick.

Or the East Clare Equestrian Centre in nearby Scarriff with a wide range of equestrian sports.
Fishing is another favourite pastime in the area as is walking or cycling in the Slieve Aughty and Slieve Beamagh Mountains or along the East Clare Way. One of Ireland's largest lakes, Lough Derg is just 15 minutes away, providing all kinds of water sport facilities, including cruising, windsurfing, sail boarding, canoeing and game and coarse angling.
The area boasts with a number of places of historical interest to explore - the Brian Boru Historical Centre in Scariff, Ireland's oldest church in Tuamgraney, the well preserved Quin Abbey and the Craggaunowen award winning Prehistoric Park, to name just a few.
