Doolin

4.6
Caves · Nightlife · Water Sports
A world-famous center of traditional Irish music, Doolin occupies a dramatic location on Ireland's windblown Atlantic coast. A tiny fishing village for most of its history, Doolin shot to fame in the 1970s, when Irish folk songs became hugely popular with music lovers from around the globe. Micho Russell, acclaimed as one of the country's finest whistle players, lived in the village and often performed at one of its pubs. Today, Doolin remains a small town, composed of a single street and a handful of quaint buildings. Use the village as a comfortable base for ventures deeper into County Clare, a region famous for its rough landscape and warmhearted people.

Where to stay in Doolin

Get the chance to see all that County Clare has to offer by staying in the charming town of Doolin. The village is so small, in fact, that the location of your accommodations hardly matters--everything is close. Some of the town's bed and breakfast locations are luxurious and overlook the rustic coast, while others feature mid-range prices. For travelers on a serious budget, seek out one of the few hostels. This small town can serve as a good base for exploring the nearby Cliffs of Moher and other significant sites.
