Travel Tips for Ballyvaughan
As you travel around, take time to view the statues that you may find outside Churches and, occasionally, alongside the road side. As well as normally being along a religeous theme they are usually aboslutely gorgeous to look at. This one is the Madonna found in the grounds of Ballyvaughan Church.
If you are travelling around the Burren by car and have a spare half hour to spare (or just happen to be travelling this way), take the N67 road that runs between Ballyvaughan and Lisdoonvarna. On this road, locally known as "corkscrew hill", there is a wonderful look out point high up on the hill that overlooks Ballyvaughan and Galway Bay. The vew is fantastic on a clear day!

We spent 2 nights here during our Bike Trip in August 05. We arrived late in the afternoon and the next day was our 'rest day' . There is plenty to do a short distance from town, There are the caves, walking tours and coves to explore.
Ballyvaughan is a pretty little village that sits in the north west area of County Clare, looking out over Galway Bay.
it consists of 3 pubs, 1 restaurant, 1 cafe, a small supermarket and a petrol station. It makes for an excellent touring base for the Burren and a few local touristy places but you really need to accept that you have to drive a ways to see other sites of Ireland.
