Hi, my name is Caragh. It's my responsibility to ensure that all our customers have a great rental experience on PlacesToStay.com. My favourite place to stay in Ireland is Dingle!
It’s not easy to please everyone on a family holiday, but Clare is the kind of place where it certainly is possible. From outdoor adventures on the coast to castle escapades, there’s something to suit all ages in the Banner County.
What kid doesn’t like a cave? Slightly spooky, mysterious, and - in the case of Clare’s Ailwee Cave, anyway - weirdly beautiful. Well-informed guides bring you on a half-hour tour of the stunning caverns, across bridged gorges, under strange formations, and alongside a crashing waterfall. You’ll even see the hibernation chambers of long-extinct brown bears. Above ground, there’s a bird of prey centre and a hawk walk. Ailwee Cave is in Ballyvaughan
Bunratty has two historic but very different attractions: a 15th-castle restored to its original splendour and a reconstructed 19th-century village, where you can stroll the streets and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of another age. The folk park incorporates more than 30 buildings, where you can chat with the bean an ti (woman of the house) and see animals like Irish wolfhounds, chickens, and deer.
Ireland’s most visited natural attraction, the Cliffs of Moher soar to 214m high and stretch for 8km along the Atlantic Coast. Even the coolest kids will be amazed by the views as you gaze out on the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, and Loop Head to the 12 Pins and the Maamturk Mountains from stunning yet safe walkways. Rangers ensure visitor safety and provide guided tours. Visit the award-winning exhibition area, see Ireland’s biggest mainland seabird colony, and enjoy a meal with a view at the restaurant.
Craggaunowen is the site of an award-winning prehistoric park set among 50 acres of wooded grounds. Recreations of some of the homesteads common in Ireland over a millennium ago include a crannog (dwelling built on an artificial island), ring fort, medieval castle, and the “Brendan Boat,” built by explorer Tim Severin to re-enact the legendary voyage of St. Brendan and his early Christian monks from Kerry to America. There’s something for all ages here - from history nuts to kids who want to play house - with a difference.
If you or your kids have always dreamed of being a surfer, Clare could be the place to make that dream come true. Lahinch has a 4km-long beach with a variety of breaks to suit experienced, intermediate, and would-be surfers. This is one of the best places in Europe to learn how to surf because the slower rolling Atlantic waves give you a chance to get up on the board before you (inevitably) fall off. A number of surf schools operate from Lahinch beach in season.
