Doolin

Doolin is a coastal village in Co Clare on the Atlantic coast. It borders the spa town of Lisdoonvarna. It is a noted centre of traditional Irish music, which is played nightly in the pubs making it a popular tourist destination. There are numerous nearby archaeological sites, many dating to the Iron Age and earlier. Doonagore Castle and Ballinalacken Castle are also in the area. Doolin is a scattered village comprising three parts along with a harbour. The Harbour is the departing point for boat trips to the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher. There is also a campsite nearby. Fisher Street has O'Connor's Pub and several shops and hostels while Fitz's Cross has a hostel, campsite, two hotels and a pub. Finally, Roadford has two pubs, four restaurants, two hostels and a number of B&Bs. Trips to Doolin Cave are also run from here. The Aille River runs from the hills of the Burren down past Doolin to meet the sea. Doolin is also a noted surfing destination and also has a rock-climbing area. As Doolin is close to the Cliffs of Moher, a bus service between Galway and Ennis calls at both Doolin and the cliffs in each direction. Bus Éireannroute 350 links Doolin to Ennis, Ennistymon, Cliffs of Moher, Lisdoonvarna, Fanore, Kinvara and Galway. There are a number of journeys each way daily. Onward rail and bus connections are available at Ennis and Galway.
