County Clare is perfect place for you to take a stay-cation this year.

From the stunning coastline and beautifully unique landscapes, to the culture and history.

Clare is renowned for its majestic setting and has hidden gems in every corner.

Here's some of the highlights of the glorious banner county.

The Burren and Cliffs of Moher

These breathtaking landscapes need to be on everyone's bucket list.

The Global Unesco Geopark is an untouched coastline reaching 8km and towering 200 metres above the North Atlantic.

The Burren is one of the most unique landscapes you'll ever see filled with native flora and fauna.

Lough Derg

Take a trip off the beaten track into East Clare.

Ireland's Hidden Heartlands have so much to offer from canoeing, paddle-boarding, cycling to walking trails.

If you're a lover of adventure then Lough Derg Blueway is the place for you.

Ennis

Ennis is a town full of character that offers a blend of the old and the new.

Visit the local farmer's markets or find a trad music session in one of the local pubs.

You'll want to soak up every bit of the wonderful bustling atmosphere of this historic town.

The Shannon Estuary Way

This 207km drive along the coast of Clare and Limerick is full of surprises.

The beautiful views are complemented by a number of fun stops including a flying boat museum, a 'Knight's Walk', Bunratty Castle, Askeaton's friary and the Treaty City Brewery.

Clare has so much to offer, and being only 2.5 hours from Dublin or 2 hours from Cork, it's the perfect destination for a getaway this year.

It's time to get planning!
