Loop Head Lighthouse

Loop Head can be found on the westernmost tip of Clare, a narrow peninsula of land that points towards the Atlantic Ocean. It's approximately an hour and 20 minutes from Ennis by car but it's worth every minute of the journey because Loop Head has it all – magnificent cliff views, fresh local seafood, a variety of water activities and plenty of peaceful beauty spots where you can rest and marvel at the spectacular scenery. A visit to the lighthouse is a must too.
