Dubai Duty Free Irish Open

Clare County Council played a major part in making Lahinch and the wider North Clare area a welcoming and attractive location for the tens of thousands of visitors at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open. We worked closely with Lahinch Golf Club, An Garda Síochána, The European Tour, Dubai Duty Free, HSE, the local community and others to ensure that visitors to Lahinch enjoy their experience and will return in the future to explore all of what County Clare has to offer.

This video showcasing what Clare has to offer was created by the council for the event.

Clare's Wild Atlantic Way

Nestled on the wonderfully weather-beaten Cliff Coast, the sheer breadth of things to do in Clare just about ticks every box. From the stirring views atop the soaring Cliffs of Moher to the time-worn crevices and cracks of the Burren’s stone landscape, not to mention renowned golf destinations like Lahinch, Clare’s whale watching wonderland or historic spots like Bunratty and Dromoland Castle.

Get out and embrace the elements at the likes of Loop Head, shorelines like Fanore Beach, spy some birdlife on Scattery Island mor explore the scenery from a totally different angle inside the ancient Aillwee and Doolin Caves.

With its Atlantic-carved cliff edges and windswept coastal charm, Clare’s got a vibe all its own.

The Burren

The Burren is a region of County Clare in the southwest of Ireland. It is one of the most unique and beautiful landscapes in Ireland. While the rest of the Emerald Isle is known for its shades of green, the Burren is known for its various shades of grey. It’s a karst landscape of bedrock incorporating a vast cracked pavement of glacial-era limestone, with cliffs and caves, fossils, rock formations and archaeological sites.
