What to do

The tour of Connemara takes in Kylemore Abbey, the Inagh Valley, the market town of Clifden etc.

The Burren tour meanders its way through one of the World’s most fascinating landscapes and takes in the famous Cliffs of Moher . At the cliffs of Moher you can view the Atlantic Ocean, The Aran Islands and the cliffs themselves which rise about 200 meters above the Atlantic Ocean. Clochard is also an ideal base for other tours such as Ashford Castle and the village of Cong. The Village of Cong was made famous by the John Ford classic film “The Quiet Man”.

Tour operators collect passengers at our house after breakfast each morning. Clochard are appointed agents for Aran Ferries and ferry trips can be booked from our premises. There are also two boat cruises of Lough Corrib that we can recommend. The Corrib Cruise which goes to Cong and the Corrib Princess which cruises the River Corrib and Lough Corrib.

Galway City nowadays if known as the Cultural Capitol of Ireland. It is famous for its Street Theatre, Arts Festival etc. During the Summer Months ” Siamsa” a spectacular show of Irish music and dance perform at the Claddagh Hall nightly. The location of this show is spectacular as its situated at the mouth of The River Corrib, with views of the Spanish Arch and on arrival at The Claddagh Hall all patrons are met and greeted by the famous Claddagh Swans.
