                      Ballyvaughan is nestled on the southern shore of Galway Bay, and is one of the most beautiful and popular villages in the Burren (County Clare).

                      It is famous for its scenic walks around the Burren region (limestone hills/mountains), and is a real treasure for walkers/hikers and botanists alike.

                      Also (given its history as a fishing-port) there are plenty of water sports/activities available in the region, and boat hire is available locally for both leisure and fishing expeditions.

                      The many local attractions include the famous Ailwee Caves, Newtown Castle, the Burren College of Art, Mortello tower, the Flaggy-Shore walk, Dunguaire Castle (banquets), Bishops-Quarter beach, and Fanore beach.

                      Ballyvaughan village itself is well serviced by many beautiful local traditional pubs, shops and restaurants.

                      It is in close proximity to the world reknown Cliffs of Moher and the championship (links) golf club at Lahinch, and is also within driving distance of Galway, Ennis and Limerick cities.

                      Golf: The world famous Lahinch Golf Club (seaside/coastal/links course) is ~20 minutes drive from Ballyvaughan.
