Loop Head Coastal Tour

We’re off to Tour West Clare!

Where The Sky Meets The Sea

There are no shops or interpretative centres on this tour!

The area known as Loop Head embodies the ‘Wild’ in Wild Atlantic Way. West  Clare is an ever changing dramatic seascape as the wild waves crash to cliffs under vast skies.

We will visit the Victorian seaside resort of Kilkee. It is a picturesque town with a horseshoe shaped beach and amazing cliffs In fact we think these cliffs equal the ‘Cliffs of Moher’ in their magnificence but you can decide that for yourself!

Next stop will be to see the geographical wonder of the ‘Bridges of Ross’. The salt sea breeze blowing round these naturally formed sea arches will definitely impact on your body and soul.

In the 19th century, the local landlord refused to allow the building of a Catholic Church. So instead, a local carpenter, Owen Collins, built a large wooden box on wheels complete with an altar. It was rolled onto the beach at low-tide, allowing them to practice their faith.

West Clare Tour
Known as the ‘Little Ark’ we will see this important piece of Irish history in it’s original condition in the Star of the Sea Church in Kilbaha. Loop Head Lighthouse is a must see attraction before we return to your accommodation base but not before stopping at Kilbaha Art Gallery and the pretty village of Carrigaholt,a fishing port overlooked by the 15th century Carrigaholt Castle. Loop Head is spectacular in fine weather and even more so when it’s blowing a storm. We will enjoy lots of short walks to shoot the breeze!

Rebecca’s top tip: Loop Head is on my doorstep and I love it! It can be seen in half a day but I’d recommend a full day.

Lunch at The Long Dock, Carrigaholt.
