Tourism & golf:

If you decide to spend some of your time taking in the sites and sounds of the West of Ireland,you might want to visit the town of Ennis, in the west part of County Clare. Here you can visit the "Burren region" where you will see the "Cliffs of Moher" (the Cliffs of Moher stretch for 8km & rise up to 214 metres above the Atlantic Ocean). On the road R480 are mégalithic tombs such as "Pulnabrone dolmen" (portal tomb from around 2700 years before JC) and "Glenisheen" smaller than the first one. On the same road, in the direction of Ballyvaughan, you will find "Ailwee Cave" (one of the many thousands of ancient caves of the Burren. The name Ailwee is derived from the Irish Aill Bhuí which means yellow cliff). Near this place are some old stone forts from the Bronze age. Don't forget to drive on the magnificient road coast (R477), and if the weather is good you will probably see the "Aran Islands"  at a few distance.

Close by are the two towns of Ennis and Limerick. Beside the town of Limerick, is "Bunratty Castle & Folk Park" beside Bunratty Castle. In the East Clare Lakelands you will find "Craggonowen Project" a restored celtic village from the bronze age at the foot of a tower built by John MacNamara near the year 1550. In the same region it's possible to visit "Quinn Abbey" founded by the MacNamaras in the middle of the 14th century using some of the curtain wall of the Anglo Norman castle built around 1280 by Richard de Clare.

Of course, these are just a few places in the area.While you are staying at Fishermens Paradise, always remember it's possible to see many other things in this beautiful part of Ireland.

For people who would like to play golf, there is one 18 hole course in the direction of Mountshannon, and in the village of Bodyke, the "East Clare Course".
