Doonbeg, known as ‘The Long Village’ is at the mouth of the Doonbeg River, on the N67 road from Ennis to Kilkee.
A striking and dramatic feature of the village is the remains of the 15th-century tower house, standing by the bridge over the Doonbeg River.
The castle was the fortress of the MacMahon’s (A descendant of Mahon O’Brien and a direct descendant of Brian Boru) and later of the O’Briens.
There are many activities on offer – from boating and angling in the sea and rivers to birding or dolphin-watching in the clear waters.
The challenging Trump International Doonbeg Links golf course is also a treat for golfing visitors.
There’s no shortage of lively local pubs where you can enjoy the kind of traditional music that has made the area famous.
