The Essential
Reputed for its pubs, where top-notch live music is played, this small village makes for the ideal stopover in the Burren. Anticipate spending long hours in the village pubs, where musicians from the four corners of Ireland meet every evening. South of Fisher Street, you can join a hiking trail that goes along the shore. After passing Doonagore Castle, built in the 15C by the O'Briens (on your left), you can continue up to the Cliffs of Moher.
