Friel's Pub

Old fashioned traditional Irish music pub dating back to 1895, rich in tradition and culture with a lovely atmosphere. Music every Friday and Saturday during the winter and every Wednesday Friday Saturday and Sunday during the summer, Famous for its trad sessions with some of Ireland finest having played here. Friels is a listed building a still has some of the old structural fittings in place which is worth seeing.

Called in here while driving around the Wild Atlantic Way. Had a super afternoon and ended up staying for the night. There was a great atmosphere in the place and nothing we asked for was too much. The staff were very much on the ball. Nothing we asked for was too much.
We stayed in the nearby Townhouse which was terrific as well.
Couldn't recommend this place highly enough.

Simply put ....."amazing"
Pat was the perfect fit for our team of novice surfers. He made us feel welcome and at ease with our obvious challenge ... Surfing the waves. Time was spent creating the ultimate atmosphere for our learning, encouraging and catching each of us at our best attempt on the boards. Fun filled morning for all. Well worth the visit to Spanish Point. Thanks, Pat! Until next time.......

Cliffs of Moher

Scenic cliffs stretching 700 feet over the rugged Atlantic coast. A short walk to O'Brien's Tower provides an excellent lookout on Ireland's beautiful western shoreline. The visitor centre hidden underneath the hillside houses an exhibition, two cafes, gift shop, toilets, first aid centre, information points and baggage store

Reviewed By Dawn A - Baltimore, Maryland

This is a must-see when you’re in Ireland. The views from the cliffs are absolutely amazing! I could have stared at the cliffs and taken pictures all day had it not been so darn windy! There was also a very nice visitor’s center, a large gift shop, and a few other little stores as well. Definitely visit!

Lahinch Beach

Reviewed By ThePBR - NE USA

It was quite the windy day - when we were at Lehinch Beach in October. It's beauty was breathtaking that day. Great to explore and take in the scenery. It was grand to walk about and watch the waves beating on the shore. The town offers a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs.

Spanish Point Beach

Reviewed By Frank2510 - Province of Munster, Ireland

This is my favourite beach on the West coast. We are safe on it anytime of the day. It is a good sandy beach and when the tide is out we have a good walk towards Quilty mind you watch the tide. We have a wonderful taste of silence and peace here even when we are many. It is a place of great fun and we are so lucky to have the life guards in the summer season. Whether it is on the sand we find ourselves or on the rocks watching the setting sun is one of the most beautiful and memorable experiences we can have. Surfers love this space! Enjoy!

Time well spent. Insightful and detailed musical presentations. Even Willie Clancy's own signature is still preserved on the wooden ceiling beams. If you want to learn and understand more about traditional music then this is a MUST visit.
