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.

"Jim was punctual, kind, knowledgeable, and very perceptive in his ability to know just what would appeal to us as a group. While Jim did the driving, we were able to see fantastic scenery. We went places we never would have found, heard unique stories and had a fabulous day!"

"Paul seemed to know just the right amount of time to stop and see things and was very knowledgable and interesting. Even though we had a long day, we wish it lasted longer and felt like we were saying goodbye to a friend when he dropped us off."
