A small fishing village, also known as Fisherstreet, on a sandy bay some 3km from Aill na Searrach, the northern end of the Cliffs of Moher. Doolin is world-famous for its wealth of Irish folk music and in recent years has been attracting crowds to spontaneous sessions and festivals or 'fleadhanna' of Irish and international music. Lots of music pubs and restaurants. Overlooked by Doonagore Castle, an unusual circular tower within a walled bawn enclosure, which has been restored as a residence. Nearer the sea, Iron Age burial mounds dot the surrounding landscape.
One of Doolin's claims to fame is that it is the main setting for the PlayStation 3 game Folklore. According to the game's storyline, the Netherworld, the world of the dead is a realm that can only be accessed from one place in the world, the sea-side village of Doolin.
Doolin is one of three places (Galway and the village of Rossaveal on the northwest shore of Galway Bay are the others) with ferry services to the Aran Islands, which are visible from the town.
The Aille River runs from the hills of the Burren down past Doolin to meet the sea. The small Crab Island is a short distance out from Doolin Harbor, barren except for the remains of a 19th Century stone constabulary outpost.
We wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our wondeful visit to your beautiful Country! We saw Powerscourt and Bantry gardens in the sunshine and Waterford Crystal and had the Medieval banquet at Bunratty during the rain so everything worked out well.
We could not have asked for nicer B&Bs and your choice of hotels was excellent. The Hotel on the first night in Dublin was an especially good choice as the service was great and the meal of lamb and Guinness was a great introduction. You did a great job as the accomodation selections were much better and in nicer locations than we would have picked on our own! You can tell from the number of greats that we had an especially good trip and Ireland will be on the top of our list for a return visit! We have told our friends about your wonderful service and I'm sure many of them will avail.
We would like to thank you for all the help and planning of a lovely visit! We felt like home!
