  3. 3. Ennis  Ennis is the county town of Clare.  It lies on the banks of the River Fergus, which runs east, then south into the Shannon Estuary.  From Ennis, you can reach any part of Clare in under two hours.  Short on sights, the town's strengths are its food, lodging and is world famous for it’s traditional entertainment.
  4. 4. The Cliffs of Moher  The Cliffs of Moher comes from the Irish name “Aillte an Mhothair” which means the cliffs of ruin.  They are one of the most popular sights in Ireland, with over a million tourists visiting every year.  A new tourist facility has opened up there recently so there’s always something to see.
  5. 5. Kilkee Kilkee is one of Ireland's leading traditional holiday centres with the village being a popular tourist destination for over 200 years.  Not only is the bay perfect for all water sports, there are some breathtaking walks around the cliffs.  There are many types of accommodation available in or near the Kilkee so its easy for tourists to find somewhere to stay. 
  6. 6. The Burren     The burren comes from the Irish word “Boirinn” meaning “great rock”. The Burren is like no other place in Ireland. There are no bogs and very few pastures. Instead there are huge pavements of limestone. The Burren is also famous for its plantlife. Plants found in the Arctic, Alpine and Mediterranean regions all grow here. Many of the views around The Burren are spectacular such as the vista across Galway Bay.
  7. 7. The Alliwee Cave  The Aillwee cave comes from the name “Aill Bhuí” which means "yellow cliff”.  It is the most famous of the many thousands of ancient caves beneath the karst landscape of the Burren.  Though there are many cliffs beneath the Burren, the Alliwee cave is the only one opened to the public.
