The nearest large towns are Kilrush and Kilkee, which are both approximately 7 miles away.The village is located in civil parish of Killard. It is part of the parish of Doonbeg (Killard) in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Killaloe. The village holds the church of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven. It is a modern church, noteworthy for the stained-glass windows that are uniquely designed so that the various colours illuminate the altar throughout the day. The church was built in 1976 and has an uncommon octagonal shape. It replaced the older crucifix-shaped church that was built in 1813.Doonbeg also has several pubs, Doonbeg National School, two shops, a post office and a village hall and tourist office.
