Panoramic view in a fascinating landscape

Fanore sits on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean about 10kms west of Ballyvaughan and 5km south of Black Head, the most northerly point of County Clare. It is famous for its golden sandy beach and weathered limestone plateaus sloping down to the Atlantic coastline. Fanore is widely recognised as one of the finest amenity areas in the Burren. (You'll find more about all the possible activies and amenities on the following page!) You can enjoy the majestic views of the sea with Connemara and the Aran Islands from the rooms to the front of the cottages!

Fanore Burren Co Clare

The highlights of our region

The Burren are about 500 sq.kms of lunar-like limestone landscape and surely one of the highlights in the Irish landscape. Its apparent bareness nurtures a surprising famous flora with many flowers which can not be found anywhere else in Ireland. When Stone Age farmers settled in the Burren they found the area forested. By late medieval times the felling of timber and the grazing of cattle produced to-days skeletal landscape. Man has left a mass of evidence of having lived on the Burren for thousands of years. Material remains abound, including megalithic tombs, stone and earth ring forts, round towers, medieval churches, monasteries and castles. Burials took place in Poulnabrone and other dolmens over a period of 600 years from 5200 to 5800 years ago. Gaelic Chieftains like the O'Briens, the O'Connors and the O'Loughlins - who were the Princesses of the Burren - had their castles here. One at least, Gleninagh Castle was inhabited until the middle of the 19th century. There are numerous caves, two of which, Doolin & Ailwee Cave are open to visitors.

The Aran Islands are an extension of the Burren landscape. The islanders, which still speak Irish, traditionally made their living from fishing. While the men were out fishing the women knitted the traditional 'Aran Ganseys'. Each of the Islands, Inis Oírr, Inis Meain and the largest Inis Mór has its own individual character and is a favourite for walking and biking. You’ll find ancient forts, churches and monuments on all 3 Islands.

Doolin, or 'Fisher Street' is a great fishing village. It has always been associated with great Irish music sessions, and was home to a great traditional Irish whistle player, the late Micko Russell. A visit to the Aran Islands is an unforgetable trip and one that you cannot afford to miss. Boats leave several times daily from Doolin Pier.

The Cliffs of Moher Co Clare

The famous Cliffs of Moher are over 200 meters high, and give visitors a high vantage point over Galway Bay and the Aran Islands. O'Brien's Tower stands guard at one end and Moher Castle is situated at the southern end. The cliffs are home to numerous seabirds,including gannets, razorbills guillemots and puffins, and the area is a birdwatcher's paradise.
