    Hi Folks,

    We are a small family run tourism business in the heart of Doolin. Our business encompasses a caravan & camping park & glamping business. It is located in the heart of the charming seaside village of Doolin, north County Clare. Established in 2014 on the grounds of O'Connor's Riverside Caravan and Camping Park, we strive to offer our guests a unique alternative to the standard forms of accommodation in the area. We blend the experience of being in the outdoors and being one with nature while still hanging on to most of the luxuries of home.

    The park which overlooks the Aille river is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac in the center of Doolin. We are less than 50 meters from Fitz's cross. Located at Fitz's cross are Hotel Doolin, Fitz's Pub, Glas restaurant, a craft shop, a tourist information point, and the Stonewall pizzeria/cafe. We are within a short five-minute walk from of all of Doolin's other famous pubs, O'Connor's, McGann's and McDermott's. All serve excellent food and have traditional music sessions nightly.

    We are situated in the heart of Doolin village. Doolin is a charming small seaside village on the northwest coast of County Clare. Set against the rugged Atlantic Ocean and surrounded by the spectacular bare limestone landscape of the Burren, Doolin is a place of breathtaking beauty. Traditionally a fishing village, Doolin is now renowned worldwide as the traditional music capital of Ireland. One of Doolin’s most famous sons was Micho Russell, a world-renown whistle player. His contribution to Irish music is celebrated with a weekend of traditional music every February. Home to thousands of international visitors each year, Doolin is many things to many people. For some, it is a place to experience rousing music sessions nightly in the pub and for others, it is a place of solitude and tranquillity where one can refresh their spirits away from the everyday hustle and bustle of life.

    Doolin restaurants offer fine foods with local seafood a specialty. Our world famous pubs feature traditional music sessions nightly and also serve tasty pub food. There is a varied and interesting range of shops with items to suit all tastes and budgets.

    Why not come and enjoy the charms of this small Irish seaside village rooted in heritage and culture yet possessing an international ambiance. We guarantee you wish you discovered it sooner and will not want to leave Doolin, County Clare.
