Spectacular edge of the world

Loop Head is spectacular. This slender finger of land points out to sea from the most westerly point of County Clare on the Wild Atlantic Way. It sits between the ocean on one side and the Shannon Estuary on the other.

Drive, cycle, or walk and immerse yourself in its wonders – including amazing cliffs, castles, coves, beaches, archaeological sites, wildlife, and fishing regions. Towns and villages to stop-off or stay include Kilkee, Kilbaha, Cross, and Carrigaholt.

Take the time to enjoy some local seafood and to pick a quiet beauty spot to pause and reflect on the wonders of this unique area.
