Central to the sights on the west coast of Co.Clare!

Góilín Cottage is a small tastefully restored cottage just 5 kms from Lahinch, Co Clare down a quite country lane, just off the main N67 Lahinch/Miltown Malbay road (part of the wild Atlantic way). The cottage is just a couple of minutes walk from a small beach at the rear. From here you can see some breath taking views of Liscannor and the Atlantic Ocean. Góilín Cottage is the ideal touring base to see all Co. Clare has to offer.

What to do nearby:

  • Walking & Cycling - Spend restful hours on the quiet roads in Clare's back country. Once you're off the N67 you have all the roads nearly for yourself! When the tide is out you can take a lovely walk from the little beach down the road on a rocky plateau on to Cregg beach. Another exciting walk can be found along the coast at White Strand, a couple of minutes towards Miltown Malbay. More about walking in the West of Clare here...

Day trips & visits:

  • Aran Islands & the Cliffs of Moher - Doolin harbour is the starting point for the ferry to the Aran Islands, a day trip which shouldn't be missed. A few minutes south of Doolin are the mighty Cliffs of Moher, Ireland's most famous landmark. The Cliffs can also be explored by boat from Doolin, or by foot on an exciting new walk along the cliff edge - saving you the parking fees at the visitor centre!
  • Exploring the Burren - The Burren is internationally famous because of its beautiful limestone landscapes and the remarkable flora as well as its rich archaeological heritage. It is the finest example of a karstic terrain in Ireland, with a full assemblage of the curious landforms and subterranean drainage systems that characterise these limestone terrains. The area also hosts 70 wedge-tombs (the most famous of them being Poulnabrone Dolmen), ring forts, caves (most notable Aillwee & Doolin Cave), castles (Leamenagh Castle) and a network of field walls and hut circles. The Burren Display centre in Kilfenora (15 mins) provides an insight into the mysteries of the region and should be your first stop on your trip.
  • Loop Head Peninsula - The scenic roundtrip 'Loop Head Drive', which starts from Kilkee, leads along the spectacular, rugged coastline to Loop Head Lighthouse. As well as breath taking cliff walks with views on wild scenery, ruined promontory forts and early oratories there are many more sights not to miss, a natural bridge (Bridges of Ross), the Moneen Church with its 'Little Ark', a wooden mobile hut, which once served as a church in earlier times, as well as a number of rare birds, whales, dolphins and seals.
