    The Loophead Peninsula in West Clare is really a place of natural beauty.
    At the tip of the Loophead Peninsula it's possible to visit the Loophead Lighthouse. The Lighthouse is open to the public 7 days from 10a.m. to 6p.m. (maybe they change in different seasons).There has been a lighthouse at this important navigational location since 1670. The light was manually operated until 1971, when electricity was introduced to the station. Loop Head Lighthouse was officially fully automated twenty years later.

    However, it's most worth seeing the cliffs around it...they are great!!! Moreover, they're pretty different at the two sides.
