Killaloe & Co Clare

Bunratty Castle & Folk Park

Our tour is situated on the banks at the southern end of Lough Derg, in the twin heritage towns of Ballina, Co. Tipperary and Killaloe, Co. Clare. With the famous 13 arch bridge and the 13th century Gothic St Flannan’s Cathedral, Killaloe is often described as one of Ireland’s best kept secrets. From this perfect base we discover some of Co. Clare’s most popular and famous attractions, and explore its extraordinary coastline.

curves, impossibly steep drop-offs, and rocks and boulders of all sizes!
