Be a tourist in County Clare


CLARE County Council are calling on the people of the Mid West to consider spending a little more of their travel time closer to home.

“Be a tourist in your own County Clare” is a new tourism initiative offering free or half price admission to visitor attractions and sites throughout Clare on Sunday April 23.

Working in partnership with the Clare Tourism Advisory Forum and local tourism attractions, the Tourism Department of Clare County Council says the initiative is aimed at promoting the quality tourism product available in Clare to the domestic market ahead of the peak tourism season.

Clare is home to some of Ireland’s best known visitor attractions including the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience, Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, Aillwee Burren Experience, Killaloe River Cruises, Doolin Cave, Craggaunowen, Burren Smokehouse and Taste the Atlantic – the Salmon Experience, and OPW Ennis Friary, all of which feature in the promotion.

Other participating attractions include Wilde Irish Chocolates, The Flying Alpaca, Doolin Ferry, Caherconnell Fort and Sheepdog Demonstrations, Vandeleur Walled Gardens, Loop Head Lighthouse, Moher Hill Open Farm, Lahinch Leisure Centre and the Michael Cusack Centre.

Cllr Tony O’Brien, Cathaoirleach of Clare County Council, said that “Clare has a compelling array of adventure activities and remarkable experiences for both locals and visitors to the county to enjoy. I would like to commend the local tourism businesses on embracing this initiative and I encourage everyone, particularly families, to take advantage of the half-price and free admission offers that are listed on and come out and enjoy the best of County Clare.”
