Lisdoonvarna
The Essential
This town owes its fame to its sulphur springs and its Matchmaking Festival. Drinking the spring water (which has a very unpleasant taste) is believed to help rheumatism and thyroid problems, while the Matchmaking Festival serves as a pretext for drinking, singing and dancing. If you don't like crowds and excessive behaviour, avoid the town in September.
