Our route makes a circuit of the Burren, beginning at the ancient cathedral town of Kilfenora, which is 29 miles from Shannon. The road westward leads through Lisdoonvarna, which doesn’t quite fit in with the wilderness, but does have lots of good shops and restaurants and various kinds of entertainment with mineral springs nearby. Signposts for Fanore and Black Head show the way to the coast, passing Ballynalacken Castle, perched on a cliff top. Go through the village of Craggah and take a walk down to the shore at Fanore.
