Travel Tips for Ballyvaughan

Ballyvaughan Church

by Ash59

I think that every village we went through had a church or two. This is Ballyvaughans'.

For some reason, in England, Churches have tended to stop playing their bells. It was an absolute delight to hear them gonging away when we were here.

Newtown Castle

by Ash59

Just down the road to Ballyvaughan, to the right of the N67 as you head toward Lisdoonvarna, you will find this castle tower. Unusual for its type, in that it starts square at its base and devolves into a circular pillar of stonework.

The tower sits up slightly higher than the surrounding land, on a hillock that gives a good view over Ballyvahaughn and Galway Bay.

It wasn’t open when we visited but there is a café and toilets open to the public. Opening times are Easter – October daily 10am – 6pm.

A stoney beach

by sabsi

A few miles before we got to Ballyvaughan we pulled left to take a break at this stoney beach. Isn't this ground amazing???? It started raining when we were here. Luckily I was rather close to the car so I didn't get wet. Colm raced back to the car, completely wet after just a minute of rain. And as soon as he reached the car .. it stopped raining of course. Typical Irish rain ;-)

Based in Ballyvaughan

by sabsi

We stopped in Ballyvaughan for one night on our trip along Ireland's west coast. It was the perfect place for trips around the wonderful Burren region.

The town itself is nothing really special but only a few miles away you will find forgotten cemetaries, limestoney grounds, caves and prehistoric sights.... The Burren really is one of my favourite areas in Ireland!

Very Irish

by littlebush

Ballyvaughan, just how I imagined an typical Irish village to be. Its tiny, has a spar shop, a couple of other small shops and 3 pubs(obviously!).
Nothing much to but its a pleasant place to stay to get a real irish experience, just pop in a pub and enjoy Irish conversation. Its located in the 'Burren', a rugged wilderness in North County Clare. Not far away are The Cliffs of Mother, one of County Clares big tourist attractions. Near them theres Doolin, a tiny tiny village with just a few shops. not far from Doolin, is Lahinch, a nice town with a very big popular beach. Further south in Clare is Bunratty castle.
