The perfect location...
...to visit the Aran Islands as well as to explore the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren region! The cottage is located near busy Doolin Pier on Fisher Street; you can watch the boats going to the Islands and to the Cliffs of Moher. The view from the cottage includes the Cliffs as well as the Aran Islands. On the other side of the street is a beautiful natural rock area, with a integrated real "swimming pool" which is fun to use on the warm days.
Doolin or 'Fisher Street' as it was known is a great fishing village. Doolin has long been associated with great Irish music sessions, and was home to a great traditional Irish whistle player, the late Micko Russell. Every night the pubs in the village are loud with the sound of fiddle, tin whistle, bodhrán, and pipes. Many guests join the locals in the music and the dance. The traditional pubs in Doolin's Fisher Street are a short walk away!
The Cliffs of Moher stand facing the Atlantic ocean well visible from the cottage. They are very impressive at over 200 mtrs high, and give visitors a good view 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.
All the sights of County Clare are within easy reach. The town of Ennis is half an hour away, Galway and Connemara can be visited on a daytrip from the cottage. The whole area offers many activities, from angling to golfing and walking. [read more on the next page...]
