    Lunch in Doolin

    During the tour to Cliffs of Moher we stopped at a pub in Doolin to eat lunch. The pub was Gus O’Connors Pub and it was very busy as we arrived but we all seemed to find a table anyway. Before leaving the bus we had been told to take a seat, look at the menu, remember the number on the table and then order and pay at the bar. I ordered a beef and Guinness stew for 10 Euro (February 2013). It came with a piece of bread and butter and tasted okay.

    We had 45 minutes for this stop, but they had been very effective in the pub with serving the food so the whole bus was ready in time.

    Doolin

    For all fans of irish folk-music I may highly recommend to visit Doolin, a small village west of Lisdoonvarna : Gus O'Connor's Pub - dating back to the year 1832 - with live-performances of traditional music every night in the summer-season. the sessions start at 09.30p.m. and last untill late at night.
    Gus O'Connor's Pub is also well known for great food : the kitchen is open between noon and 09.00p.m.

    Doolin is also a great place to shop for music-casettes in that building that you may see on my picture - it is the first house after the bridge !!

    Fishing, Traditional Irish Music, and the Ferry

    Doolin

    Doolin is a small fishing village on the coast of County Clare. We visited Doolin on our way back from the Cliffs of Moher and was a great stop before we headed out on the Burren. There isn't much in Doolin except for about 3 pubs and some craft stores.

    Doolin is traditionally a fishing village and you can get a ferry to the Aran Islands in Doolin. I was also told that Doolin is a popular spot for Irish Music and we saw this when we ate at O'Conners pub. The walls were filled with a who's who of Traditional Irish musicians.

    Doolin Pier

    Waves at Doolin Pier

    Doolin is a small fishing village on a bay at the northern end of the Cliffs of Moher. From its pier you can see these famous cliffs in a distance and from the pier, you can do boat trips to the cliffs and there’s a ferry to the Aran Islands. When we were there, the waves were so huge, it looked fantastic.

    Doolin is said to be centre of Irish Music, it has several Singing Pubs and a music shop. Although it’s such a little village it has been very full and busy. However at the pier, it fortunately was more calm!

    Village of Doolin

    Doolin is a very friendly and small village that will serve as your best base if you want to have lots of time to explore the Cliffs of Moher. It also has a reputation as one of the hot-beds of Irish music and it is well worth your while to take in its pub nightlife! This village is also a point of departure for the ferry service to the Aran Islands, one of the last outposts of Gaelic culture.

    SUNSET FROM DOOLIN

    Sunset over the Atlantic Ocean

    While spending the night in Doolin we were told that we could see a really nice sunset if we walked up to the edge of the Burren. Its about a 20 minute walk up past the ruined church and over the edge of the Burren but be careful of your footing!! We timed it just right and saw a beautiful sunset over the Atlantic Ocean
