World famous cliffs. Great for a good hike ... can walk from Doolin to cliffs and back or carry on from cliffs and end up in Hags Head. I like to walk from Hags Head and back. Fab walk. If you are not up for a hike drive up, park and visit the visitors centre.

Pub
“The MOST famous of all Pubs in Doolin is the legendary Gus Oconnor's. Made famous by the Russell family this place provides nightly music and lively weekend day sessions, the food is top class and always consistent. It can get quite busy but there is ample table space with a little patience.”

Lodging
“Fanore Beach is on the northwest coast of the Burren and its golden arc of sand with the backdrop of bare limestone hill make this a very distinctive Geosite. This Geosite contains a sand dune complex, the only surface river that flows over the Burren limestone, the oldest archaeological remains in the Burren as well as spectacular biokarst and fossiliferous limestone.”

Point of Interest
“Poulnabrone – Geosite Situated on the high Burren limestone plateau, Poulnabrone Dolmen is one of Ireland’s most iconic archaeological monuments and is the second most visited location in the Burren after the Cliffs of Moher. It is the oldest dated megalithic monument in Ireland. Portal Tomb Poulnabrone is classified as a portal tomb. Portal tombs have two large portal stones standing on either side of an entrance capped with a massive sloping capstone. A second stone which lies on the ground at the rear of the monument was likely a second capstone which would have fitted in under the main capstone and covered the back of the structure. This part collapsed at some unknown time in the past. The tomb was built on limestone pavement and surrounded by a low mound of rocks. This mound of rocks would have added support to the upright stones which are otherwise only supported by the weight of the capstone. The uprights are not wedged into the deep fissures which are common in the limestone. The limestone flagstones which were used to build the monument would have been extracted from the surrounding limestone pavement. Archaeology Excavations by archaeologist Anne Lynch in the 1980’s revealed the remains of 21 people in the main tomb chamber and radiocarbon dating of their bones indicates that the tomb was in continual use for a period of 600 years between 5,200 and 5,800 years ago. The bones show signs of wear that suggests hard physical labour was normal for the people of the time and while one hip bone had the tip of an arrow head embedded in it indicating conflict, there is also evidence of creativity and craftsmanship shown in the discovery of a decorated neck pendant. ”
