Doolin is a charming small seaside village on the northwest coast of County Clare. Set against the rugged Atlantic Ocean and surrounded by the spectacular bare limestone landscape of the Burren it is a place of breathtaking beauty. Doolin is situated 8km from the famous cliffs of Moher,and 6km from Lisdoonvarna spa town.

Traditionally a fishing village, Doolin is now renowned world-wide as the traditional music capital of Ireland. One of Doolin's most famous sons was Miko Russell, a world-reknowned tin whistle player. His contribution to Irish music is celebrated with a weekend of traditional music every February.

Home to thousands of international visitors each year, Doolin is many things to many people. For some it is a place to experience rousing music sessions nightly in a pub and for others it is a place of solitude and tranquility where one can refresh their spirits away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Doolin has been welcoming visitors for many years and some of the more popular activities are, visiting the magnificent Cliffs of Moher, or the archaeological sites in the Burren, finding the rare flora and fauna of The Burren, enjoying scenic country walks, visiting the Aran Islands, Sea Angling, watching the sunset, enjoying the waves, playing pitch and putt or trying some of the following more specialized activities. Caving, Scuba diving, Rock Climbing, Hill Walking or Mountain Biking. Doolin Cave (Pol an Ionain) is set to become one of the major tourist attractions in County Clare.

You can take a ferry trip that brings you right under the Cliffs of Moher and gives magnificent sea level views of the cliffs and "The Needle", home to thousands of different nesting seabirds.

" We had a wonderful experience trying to find relatives. We had a private tour guide, Patrick, who took us to the end of the farthest peninsula. found distant cousins and in the end found dad's second cousin. He was professional and courteous."
