Additional Location Information

Shannon Airport is about 45 minutes by car. The castle is 2.5 miles from the nearest town. There are hundreds of things to see and do in the neighbourhood, from experiencing the countryside to one of the many cultural events or extensive sports facilities. County Clare is a land of ancient castles and diverse landscapes, of uncrowded byways and fascinating sightseeing, from quiet lakes to vast, sandy beaches and the eerie landscape of 'The Burren'.
Lahinch (6 miles): This lovely seaside resort has a lot to offer. Stretching around one of the longest sand beaches in Ireland, it also has a fantastic Seaworld Aquarium and leisure centre with swimming pool and two championship golf courses.
Cliffs of Moher (6 miles): Some call it the largest tourist attraction in Europe. Rising 650ft out of the Atlantic Ocean and extending for 5 miles, the sheer rock face of the Cliffs is an awesome sight.
Doolin (6 miles): The mecca for Irish music, pubs and celtic craft is Doolin. The three Aran Islands lie in the entrance to the Galway Bay and can be reached by ferry.   Kilfenora (2.5 miles): The smallest diocesan of Ireland with its cathedral and famous highcrosses. Nearby, Lickeen Lake is an insider tip for every passionate freshwater angler. The Burren Exhibition Centre has a fabulous display, and guests should not miss the traditional Irish Dancing at Vaughan's Barm.
Liscannor (6 miles): Famous among deep-sea anglers, step on board one of the boats and explore the waters of Galway Bay. Visitors may see blue sharks, basking whales, dolphins or even killer whales.
Lisdoonvarna (3 miles): Founded at the discovery of its sulphur, iron and magnesium rich spa wells, this town is home to welcoming restaurants and some excellent traditional pubs. Guests can treat themselves to a sulphur bath, have a massage, wax treatment or sauna in old-fashioned Victorian surroundings. Don't miss the unsurpassed taste of the world famous salmon from the Burren Smoke House.
Within 10 miles, there are also many sports facilities including pony trekking, surfing, diving, abseiling, caving, pitch and putt, cycling, tennis, and of course hundreds of miles of scenic walking routes.
