County Clare is located on the west coast of Ireland, with the Atlantic Ocean to the west, Lough Derg to the east, the River Shannon (Ireland's longest river) to the south and east and Galway Bay to the North. It is part of the province of Connacht, in the Republic of Ireland. The area hosts one of the most diverse landscapes in the country, with the towering Cliff's of Moher (nearly 700 feet above sea level), the vast limestone region of the Burren, its rugged Atlantic coastline, the lake area of Lough Derg and majestic River Shannon.
Tourism is one of the most important industries for the county, amongst its numerous attractions are: the Aillwee Caves, a cave dating back to the Ice Age; Bunratty Castle, a 15th century castle, overlooking the River Shannon; the Poulnabrone Dolmen, an ancient burial ground, dating back some 5000 years; the Burren, a vast Limestone region in the county.
Ennis is the county's main town, located just 20 miles from Limerick City and on the River Fergus. The origins of the town date back to the 13th century with the founding of a Franciscan monastery and the building of a castle, by the O'Briens of Thomond. It was the most important town in medieval Clare. The town made history in 1828 when it elected Daniel O'Connell a member of British Parliament. He was the First Irish Catholic to be elected to the House of Commons.
Each year the town of Lisdoonvarna, in the Burren Mountains, is the site of Ireland's only matchmaking festival. The festival takes place over five weeks during September and October. Also of note, West Clare is renowned for its water sports activities. It is an area of unspoilt beauty located between the Shannon Estuary and the Atlantic. County Clare is often referred to as the 'Gateway to the West' - it has its own international airport, in Shannon, and its close proximity to the cities of Limerick, Galway earning it this title.
