County Clare – Doolin & The Cliffs of Moher

For many good reasons, most visitors to Ireland have the Cliffs of Moher on their “must see” list. The cliffs and the surrounding area are beautiful and unique to this part of Ireland. There are a variety of ways to see the cliffs, but some enhance the experience more than others:
  - Guided Bus Tour
  - Drive
  - Bus Éireann
  - Boat
  - Hiking

Planning Your Trip - OPW and the Heritage Card

One of the best-kept Irish holiday secrets is the Office of Public Works, OPW, and the Heritage sights that they manage. An even better secret is the Heritage card that affordably provides unlimited admission to the OPW Heritage Sights.

County Clare - Intro

Cliffs of Moher in County Clare
County Clare is one of my favorite Irish counties, right behind Galway. Clare is immediately south of County Galway and a great day trip or overnight trip from Galway City, or a stop on a "southern loop" vacation. Clare has it all: views, quaint villages, and a great music community.

Like my blogs on Galway, County Clare will be a series of blogs. First blog: an overview of the County sights, towns, and transportation options.

Trains are a comfortable and economical way to travel throughout Ireland, most of the time. This blog discusses some of the ins and outs of using Irish rail that will make your experience much smoother.  The primary focus is on Heuston Station in Dublin, and the Dublin to Galway rail route. This is the route taken most often by our visitors and ourselves.
