More to Clare than the Cliffs of Moher | The Wild Atlantic Way

“It’s a long, long way from Clare to here” as the song goes, but even so a million plus visitors a year flock to the Cliffs of Moher to marvel at the 300 meter cliffs, that drop sheer into the Atlantic Ocean for several miles along the western edge of County Clare. The Atlantic Edge Experience at the Cliffs of Moher visitor centre not only explains the geological background, flora and fauna, using interactive media, but also the local history, music and folklore of the area. Killary Harbour, Derrygimalagh Bog and of course, The Cliffs of Moher are three signature points located along Clare's Wild Atlantic Way driving route and are must-see places to visit.

The Burren | Co Clare

The Burren in Co ClareThe area is known as the Burren “An Bhoireann” in Irish translates into a ‘stoney place’. An appropriate name for the bare, grey, tiered limestone mountains that can be seen from a distance. More correctly identified and protected now as an important karst region it consists of layers of limestone which formed from the compressed remains of a tropical seabed ocean millions of years ago. Fossils of coral and various other sea creatures and plants are evident everywhere, from the seashore to the mountain tops. As Doolin Cliff Walk - Wild Atlantic Waywell as another anomaly, not found anywhere else in Europe, that of alpine plants like gentians, edelweiss, and mountain avens growing at sea level where they would not ordinarily thrive. Wild orchids and harebells also abound making this area one of the prettiest and most different landscapes in Ireland.

Coastal Drives

With fantastic coastal drives, the one from Ballyvaughan, a pretty thatched cottage village via Blackhead to Doolin. Another lesser know route around the Southern tip at Loop Head, who won Best Place to Holiday in Ireland in 2013, is just as beautiful with the Bridges of Ross sea stacks and the most westerly pub in Ireland, Keating’s in Killbaha, the next being New York!

Danabel Porridge Bread Recipe

I started making my Porridge Bread about a year ago. It was so popular with guests that I carried on making it. Now, I make it everyday and leave it on the breakfast table for my guests to help themselves. I am always complimented on how tasty it is. The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it is so easy to prepare, yet so delicious!
