Liscannor, from the Irish meaning “ringfort of Ceannúr”, is a magnificent coastal village on the west coast of County Clare, situated at the end of Liscannor Bay.
The Cliffs of Mother are just 4km/2.5 miles from the village, while angling is a very popular activity both at the pier and at the beach.
One of the most renowned aspects of Liscannor is its beautiful and distinctive flagstone, which is called Liscannor Stone.
About 3km/2 miles north-west of Liscannor where you’ll find the O’Brien Monument, close to the Holy Well of Saint Brigid, the waters of which are believed to have curing properties.
In 1853, Cornelius O’Brien MP was cured of an ailment with water from the Holy Well. He erected the high pillar to show his gratitude.
On the last Sunday in July each year, pilgrims travel from far and wide to visit the Well for the Lughnasa festivities.
