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. Make Doolin central to your Ireland travel plans using our Ireland trip itinerary maker tool.
