Inis Oirr (Eastern Island) is only a 30 minute ferry journey from Doolin. There are many attractions to be found here – ancient castles, a shipwreck, a lighthouse, one of Ireland’s most beautiful beaches, a modern playground and several fine pubs and cafes. The 3 pubs all serve good, local food and traditional Irish music can be heard on a daily basis.
There are a number of ways to see the island while you are there. You can walk along the many quiet roads, rent a bicycle on the island, or take a guided tour in one of the pony & traps or tour buses.
The Cliffs of Moher are the crowning glory of the Clare coastline. Like a viewing platform for prehistoric giants who wish to peer over the edge of Europe, the cliffs provide an unrivaled view across the vast boiling wildness of the Atlantic Ocean, a world unchanged since the pre-Celtic masters of magic, the Tuatha Dé Danann ruled Ireland.
