Doolin is known as the centre of music and merriment in Ireland. A place of great beauty and tranquillity where the visitor can refresh their spirits away from the everyday hustle and bustle of life. Doolin is on the fringe of the world famous Burren, a remarkable limestone area which has a combination of many visual features that make it a unique landscape in Europe. Its geology, flora, caves, archaeology, and history set it apart as a place of mystery and beauty- an explorer’s dream.
Local restaurants offer fine foods and dining with fresh seafood the speciality. Craft shops in the region offer a range of locally produced hand-crafted products. Three world famous pubs, O’Connor’s, McGann’s, and McDermott’s, feature traditional music sessions nightly. The surrounding music shops have a wide range of items available to suit all tastes.
Doolin also has a wide selection of accommodation to suit all budgets including Bed & Breakfasts, Self Catering Cottages, Hostels & Hotels.
Just 2 miles south of Doolin are the majestic Cliffs of Moher, battling daily with the Atlantic ocean. They rise in places to over 700 feet. The visitor centre is open all year round. The Burren Display Centre in Kilfenora helps visitors to unravel many of the Burren’s mysteries.
