Bring out the poet in you in Ireland's County Clare

You only need to see County Clare in Ireland to figure out why people want to become poets. County Clare is a visual poem written by Mother Nature herself, enriched by the people who lived there for millennia. From the lonely expanse of The Burren to the dramatic drops of the Cliffs of Moher, from the enchanting traditional music played in Doolin to the hilarious matchmaking festivals of Lisdoonvarna, you may find yourself inspired to write a poem while staying at County Clare vacation rentals.

Things to do

Prepare to be inspired by The Burren

The Burren is one of the most awe-inspiring places you'll see in County Clare. Taking its name from the Irish word "boireann," which means "rocky place," The Burren is a vast field of limestone, shale, siltstone, and sandstone. The place may seem austere at first glance but get to know it further and you'll discover 4,000-year-old tombs, medieval fortresses, rare plants found only in Ireland, and many native animal species. You can take your time savoring the beauty and history of The Burren if you stay at County Clare vacation rentals.


Take your sturdy shoes with you to County Clare

You're sure to need sturdy footwear when you visit County Clare. Your feet will thank you for when you explore the limestone fields of The Burren, home to mysterious show caves and megalithic tombs, as well as rare flowers found only in Ireland. Your sturdy shoes will also give you more stomping power if ever someone pulls you into a traditional dance at a pub in Doolin, County Clare's center of Gaelic music. The only time you won't need shoes is when you go surfing in Lahinch.


Rain or shine, take your raincoat with you

County Clare observes 4 seasons but stay there long enough and you may feel like it only has 3: slightly dry, wet, and wetter. The fall and winter months – from September to January – are when the region gets its most rainfall and when you're likely to score great deals on County Clare vacation rentals. Rainfall tends to peter out come April, but County Clare's weather is known to be changeable. So even when the sun is up, you'd better bring your raincoat with you, just in case.

Natural features

County Clare isn't an island, but it's surrounded by water

Wanna know an interesting fact? County Clare is almost entirely surrounded by water. River Shannon, Ireland's longest river, runs southeast of the county and empties into the Shannon Estuary. The estuary, in turn, faces the Atlantic Ocean, which hugs the county's western coastline. The western coastline is also where you'll find the dramatic sandstone Cliffs of Moher. To the north of County Clare is Galway Bay, and to the northeast is Lough Derg, one of Ireland's largest lakes. Inland, County Clare is generally hilly.
